Witch tire "axial pro" or " carbon" is the best for grip and durability on sometimes wet roads .

you know i could be way off.. this is just my opinion.. i love my axial pros and all that.. but i dont think of them as a good wet road tire.. i find myself riding on them super-gingerly in the wet..(which is rare out here)
I know that there are some other brands designed for wet riding.. for years i rode contis with a little less air pressure and did great in the occasional rain...

I am curioius as to what answers you get here...
While we are at it, how easy is it to mount them on mavic rims?koala

You might want a tire lever "just in case"- but I found it to be easier than expected.
