Hello drift people

will be doing my first wet skid pan this weekend in my ae86

Car has Yokohama S drives 195/50/15..same as bridgestones re001s and the likes..
Car is just a 16v bigport NA, standard

i have tested these in the rain once or twice and they are nice when sliding, but to be honest they still hold a lot of grip in the wet,
Just want to know if they will be fine for wet skid pan days or should i bring something with less grip just in case?

i know its my choice but would like some feedback from you drifters also

Just putting it out there if anyone is interested, the S drives are magic to slide with in the wet.. i didnt even bother changing to my skid pair, the tyres would step out and i would be in control from start to stop.

Excellent front tyre. nice stiff side wall with good square shoulder- gives great initial turn in response.

on the rear also great until you get down to the last 15-20% then they seem to loose their grip.

ran em on my mx5 at vicdrift round 2. 190rwkw mx5 is 1020kg ish. was running em at 18psi on the rear.
