    Good tires for wet conditions

    I am looking for recommendations for a good tire for riding in the rain. Looking for something 700x25-28.

    Thanks

    I've had good luck with my Conti 4000s tires - even running 23mm's on damp pavement. I *think* they came out with a 25mm tire.

    My faves as well, and I've used both 25 and 28.
