.....in the wet.

Is there such a thing?

I run Zestinos in competition and in the dry they are spot on and currently the tyre of choice.

However, as good as they are in the wet, they are not great so the question comes from a need to gain an advantage in the wet.

Any ideas?

I've just ordered some uniroyals rain sport 3s. Very popular on the track day scene when on a budget.

Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, put them on my 911 and they grip well in the dry but in the wet? Like Cup Sports in the dry. Seriously, I have never known a tyre so good.

Do they have to be road legal?

If not, the Dunlop Sport wets (as used by BTCC I think) are amazing. But they are competition use only

Yes have to be road legal. Sorry probably should have put that in the original post.

Can vouch for Michelin pilot 4s.
Never really push my car's in the wet but traction is good.

There can be huge difference in wet weather grip between even tyres from the same factory.

My 156 wagon had (IIRC) Eagle NCT2s on one end and Dunlop Sports the other. The end (I tried front and rear) that had the Dunlops had very little grip in the wet and it really unbalanced the car. I spoke to Dunlop technical and the guy said that he entirely understood and that it was less a problem with the Dunlops but a reflection on the grip the NCT2s generated - and that both tyres were made in the same factory.
