If you have a clue, why can you not answer the questions correctly? Why are you losing an argument to a dude/machine?

Your inability to wade though the topic probably explains why you do not understand it, and are forced to resort to ad hominem attacks.

You have already informed me that I don't have a clue, so why would I waste any more time answering your questions incorrectly?

Pete, you had several opportunities to demonstrate your alleged knowledge on this topic -- before I eventually asked you why couldn't, if you are in possession of the clues that you claim to be. Instead of doing so, you chose to make a raft of factually incorrect statements about alleged 'lubricant' and adhesion and references to some mystical non-mechanical traction. In short, you demonstrated a very poor understanding of the topic at-hand. You have an opportunity to learn, here -- as distasteful as that may be for you to admit -- but you'd have to stop approaching that opportunity as a "waste of time".

Either way, it'd be good if you didn't spread your misconceptions around. If you want to believe in some magical force that provides non-mechanical traction, that's your business, but don't confuse innocent bystanders with that nonsense.

Whatever. Why donít you just recommend a tyre like the OP asked?

well I had to change tires the back went through 6oz of sealant between Friday and Tuesday morning. its hard to find a hole in a tire in the rain and fenders. so when I got to work I took the rear wheel on and found a ole that needed two plugs and the tire was empty of sealant but after plugging it I found a few more fairly large ones that had sealed. so figured they are too thin for winter riding and time to change over.

You might -- emphasis on might, 'cause I am not prepared to guarantee that it'll work better -- want to try winter-specific sealant, like Orange Subzero. I use Subzero in a couple bikes, but I'm not sure how much difference it really makes. I also have regular Orange in some tires, and I haven't tracked the relative performance accurately enough to say one way or t'other.

Because I don't have a 650b bike, and have never ridden on either of OP's tires in the cold and wet. So, instead of talking out of my rear-end, like you have been, I declined to offer wild speculation about OP's choice.

we dont get cold. just tons of rain and crap on the road. cold rain like 34 degrees and rain. when I went tubeless I put on Schwalbe g1- speed tires a great rude but I bet I had 15 punctures in a month or so. I now use Peatys sealant its like Stans but without the boogers linger use time and yo can use CO2 with it.

Yeah, instead you offered some wild speculation about bicycle hydroplaning. Comedy gold.

No, Pete, I offered video evidence and professional research on the topic. Sit and have a think for a while, and see if you can puzzle out the difference.

An irrelevant topic that nobody is remotely concerned about, which appears to be your schtick.

Your comments have gone from bad, to worse, to embarrassing. The topic is explicitly performance in the rain, and hydroplaning is directly relevant to that issue.

Seriously consider just running away, like you had to do last time you became fixated with trying to argue with me.
