The I-Beams dont have a whole lot of side bite and alot of forward bite, so it lets the back end be a little more loose in the turns, and the Cityblocks on the front still lets you have great turn out. I noticed when I ran I-beams all around I had a little push coming out of the corner (We have a couple really tight turns on our local track).

I have run them on dry and wet. Work well in both situations.
