Rain tire for the track

What would be a good "wet" tire for track use in 15 and/or 16", 225 wide?

The only performance tires i've delt with in those sizes was Dunlops and Bridgstones.... Loved the Potenza's, really impressed with how they came through!

In terms of street tires, the best I've had so far for wet conditions.

I don't mind spending $$$ for good tires. As far as I know they don't make T1-S anymore.

Falken 452 are great for wet track. I carry Flaken tires if you are interested.

I run Toyo T1-R's on my E30 and love them in the wet.

I have run Bridgestone SO-2's or 3's on the P-car at Mosport in the wet and they were excellent.

T1-R's always better price.
Michelin totally bite in the wet.
