Topic about which tires are the best to avoid rear wheel slides when braking or accelerating in the rain.

My opinion is my last set, pirelli angel, are the best I have had (previously citygrip and diablo)
Temperature never below 4

I can't complain about the Michelin City Grip. And it is available in a Winter version which should offer even better performance in the wet.

Can't say anything about the Pirellis as of yet as I still have a couple of sets of Metzelers (a division of Pirelli) that I'm going to try when the City Grips are worn.

The Pirelli angel on my 2019 HPE 500 have been great in the wet.
Rear Lasted 6500 miles.
Slightly more expensive than the Michelin.
