Probably the same as you need snow tires. When the folks lived in Yuma, there would be these "monsoons" that flooded everything for an hour or so.

We didn't have much rain this year, although we had a couple inches of snow on Monday and Tuesday.

Well I was able to replace worn out ecopia tires that were aired up to 44 psi with Michelin energy saver tires at 36psi and saw no reduction in range or efficiency and I was watching for it.
Old worn out tires are supposed to be the most efficient they will ever be.

Ya, when a tire is worn out that's when it's most efficient on dry pavement.
