tread definitely has a place and a purpose. but rubber is more important than the tread. given the same tread style three different tyres with three different rubber compounds will behave completely different. so "pay attention to rubber, don't worry about the tread style too much" is the bulletpoint. The same goes for knobbies and slicks too - it's the rubber that makes the difference, not the tread or lack there of.

They sure do run treaded rain tires....and as far back as I can remember, they always have

Interesting that they mentioned in the article that they were requiring the use of ribbed tires at that time (rather than slicks) to reduce traction to slow the cars down in the corners for safety reasons.

If you have a perfectly dry and clean surface a slick will give you the best traction because it has the most contact with the road.  The issue is when you have a little bit if water (as in very light sprinkle) the rubber can't contact the road because the water doesn't have anywhere to go and you effectively hydroplane.   When running slicks on my drag car, if there was a little bit of water on the track it might as well have been black ice if you are going at any speed.  For any that don't know, drag slicks are very sticky but the smooth surface doesn't give water (or sand or mud) anywhere to go so it floats on top.

Were they referring to ribbed tires on a dry track? I guess I missed that part...where did it say that....

Oh, sorry, it was in the article that NiK posted (which may be dated now):

Good article and it makes  sense..less rubber in contact with the surface means less available grip..its an easy way to slow the cars down and maintain  fairness between teams  since they all use the same tires.
