Grip:

Grip: The amount of traction a tire can produce on a road surface. Tires produce maximum traction when they are upright and perpendicular to the road surface. An upright tire creates a contact patch on the road that has the optimal distribution of stresses. This ensures maximum traction with a long and even wear.

Ive driving with the nitto neo gens also. They are probably the best tire for the price it rides the same in the rain as on dry pavement -scott
What he said.
We got about 2 inches of rain here in NC last weekend and I was aiming for puddles, to see how bad it pulled when goin through at speed. I won't say it didn't pull, but I was confident I wouldn't be pulled from the road if I hit one unexpectedly. I cannot say the same for the Contis..... Not to mention corners were very very predictable, having to really throw the car into it to induce a slide. Launching feels like I did a burn out first to warm them up. I can't say enough... Get them if you don't have mud or snow to worry about.
