    Depends on the rain really, It can rain just overnight and your minions will be fine the next day, but it can rain for days at a time, wet screams are a good bet then.

    but question really is. will supertacky dhf when its wet be grippy /good enough or should i take wetscream dh for wet days? and if so both tyres or just front will do?

    Intermediate spikes like Magic Mary’s or Maxxis Shorty’s are great because they work in almost anything. Good in the mud, good in the soft wet in between stuff and good in dust. Perfect front tyre if drag is an issue or you need to pedal.

    Last year it didn’t rain for a week before it was hard enough to take my Mary’s off and put High Rollers on.

    Are you riding bike park or natural trails.
    Is it going to be pissing with rain for a week before you arrive.
    Are you racing or having fun. (if you are racing & you don’t know what tyres – you are gonna lose)
    100% chairlift or pedal up.
    road or MTB?

    Throw us a bone.

    how wet is wet? only you can decide. if it helps, I’ll be taking my regular set up plus 2 dirty dans (in 2.5 weeks). If i don’t need them, ill send them back to CRC on my return.
