    Because, aquaplaning resistance works by water channeling and with less grooves usually worse.
    Just like Yokohama db that you used before. Grooves are fine and small so tyres are very quiet but water channeling is bad, that is why I never recommend the new AE-50 to those who loves running fast in the wet.....lol :rofl:

    Avoid Falcon and Hankook entry level tyres. They are scary and almost as bad as the Viking. XM2 is pretty decent

    Two 1.3 Myvis, one using BFG and another Viking, BFG can carry 80-90kmh speed at the corner I like to take. Viking slips at 80kmh, to make it worse there's no warning. Just slip and slide when it feels like.

    Hmm... ok maybe I'm not fast enough to go over the limits of these BFGs in the wet. But comparing side by side with the Viking, the Viking feels like I'm driving on ice! Zero confidence level.

    Yokohama BluEarth AE01 is quite good, bought for Wira 13inch but should have 14inch as well.
