Default Re: Slick vs Semi-Slick

I think one advantage to tread on tires is to spray the water to the sides instead of straight up in your face and on your pant legs. I rode the other day in Dallas with mudders on and I got a soaking and my pants were coated with road grime closae to my ankles. I had some bell comfort tires that did not do near that much splashing on me. I figure that's half the reason there's an arrow on the direction the tire mounts. I know a set of rims would be the ideal thing.
