Hi all,


I'm looking to buy a set of wets and wet rims (10") for my circuit racer and the only stipulation is that they must be in Section L 1a, 1b or 1c of the blue book. Compounds are free.


I'm not restricted on budget so the simple question is - what's the best combination I can get? I'm assuming that the narrower, the better with regards to rims so 10x4? And on the rubber, I'm completely clueless. I see that you can get Dunlop Miglia wets but as they're a controlled tyre they don't seem to have a model number and also not sure how good they actually are.

You need to ask racers in your events. But I just use the same rubber for wet and dry. Just old drys cut with a patten.
