Default Rain tires

Hi to E1,I'm interested in buying rain tires, I'd like to know if some1 of you has already tested lrp/nosram d20 r tires (ex pit shimizu) or schumacher wet tires and if they work well in wet conditions. What'bout also with pit shimizu d20 slick (for humid/wet conditions? Which insert is better to use? Thanks in advance for many answers,cheers!

Pit Shimizu D01J Tyre, mounted with Sorex B medium insert on Schumacher RevLite rims

Uk BRCA National Tire

Brilliant performance out of them in the wet (on what very little running I got)

I used some 26mm pit shimizu D20s. They are incredibly soft and grippy. 26mm was actually overkill too.

Schumacher and LRP do the same Pit tyres on rims but with different inserts, I think the new Schumacher versions are slightly better.

I used to warm them before running but now I can't be arsed.
Just set your car up to make the best use of them.

I bought mine February last year, before pit shimizu went out of business.
