What wet tyres for trackday

Just wondering which is the best brand of full on wets for trackday use.
I normally run Michelin on the road but have switched to Pirelli Supercorsa pros for the dry but was wondering about dunlop or pirelli wets.

Anybody with any experience of both?

I get on with most wets, I put Dunlops in the van yesterday evening ready to take to Cadwell but have raced previously on Pirelli, Michelin and Bridgestone without any issues so I'm hoping the same applies to the Dunlops.
Rather than worry about which brand, go for the newest wet rubber you can at the best price, unless you get offered an amazing deal on oldish stock

Thanks Skidlids that makes sense. The latest technology regardless of manufacturer is probably always going to be best as they are fighting between themselves & the rest comes down to how much your willing to pay.
I'm hoping I don't need them but it's not looking hopeful for Sunday.

I used Continental Rain Attack in soft compound, they were excellent. I hear the Bridgestones are really good as well.

dunlop full wets - will i get shot for herasy if i say they proved great for road riding last winter?......even in the dry and warmish(12degrees in april) - absolutely no slides at all, wet or dry. ok, they only lasted approx 1500 miles, but, hey - Wintermediates!

Look's like it's going to have to be Michelin as that seems to be all I can get hold of.
