Kenda's response for suggested sticky race rain tire

After the last thread I created asking about Kenda vs Mitas and which would be better I went with the Kenda's and I also mentioned in that thread I would reach out to them with a suggestion to get us a sticky rain tire for the race track. They had sent a response back to me suggesting to use the Kozmik tire which is a hard/medium compound but not "much harder" that the Kwik but still sticky.

I did look at those before but wasn't confident in their grip level but at their price I might give them a shot.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Looking at sizing was thinking: 110/70 front and 120/70 rear.

Ride Safe

I suspect compound way too hard for true rain racing use, but if you try them let us know.

We stock the Kozmik, though they're just hitting the market. Can't say I've raced them in the rain, but they certainly look the part of a rain race, and all initial feedback has been great.
