Andy, slicks work just as well in the wet as they do in the dry. No worries, mate!

If you got tyre warmers, you'll be alright on slicks

Lots of informative folks on the DSC board. Fear not, Andy, one of them will be along to help you out.

Oh, and you'll certainly notice the difference with slicks ... they're the ones without a tread pattern. Have fun in Almeria!

Andy, if its dry run slicks. They're grippy as f***

If it's damp with no standing water, run the slicks. If it's wet with standing water - wets or something else and you'll be fine.

Keep the warmers on, keep the beers flowing and you'll be sweet.
