I think I have a set of those in my shed, I'll have to double check. They look similar, and mine is a pirelli full wet.

So far, I'v found out they ARE Pirrelli's, but I'v yet to find a distributor for them, just a bit more searching is all. They are listed on the Pirrelli web site under Rain tires, along with another model that looks simmilar to the Avon Rain Race tire.

do you plan on riding alot in the rain? most of the MFGs have a rain tire so if you like a particular brand, you can find their rain tire from your favorite distributor.

Race tires are generally not open to the general public to buy. They are specifically designed for use on the track. If have any local race clubs maybe you can get a set from one of the racers to get for you or just show up with a set of rims and have one of the vendors put them on for you. Be prepared so spend 5-600 for a set.
