The Pirelli Rain WH is a competition only tire made for wet weather racing manufactured for performance vehicles. The model is not street legal and it can only be used for wet weather racing. The special tread grooves and curved transverse channels enhance the hydroplaning resistance by dispersing water at the back, side and front of the tire. This improves the wet weather traction greatly. The maintained road contact is thanks to the larger tire footprint, which also enhances the Rain WH’s steering responsiveness and controllability.
Wet Weather Tire
The circumferential and lateral grooves provide hydroplaning resistance and enhance the wet weather traction.
The curved transverse channels of the tread allow the tire to disperse water at the tire’s front and sides as well as the footprint.
The directional tread pattern provides a quicker and more precise steering responsiveness.
The larger tire footprint ensures great controllability by maintaining road contact at all times.
The tire has exceptional high speed performing ability, but it is only recommended for use in wet weather conditions.
