No.

Tires are made out of different compounds, roads are made of different materials. Each has their own coefficient of friction differing from dry to wet. To have a rule of thumb, you would have to know all the variables as mentioned.

The only rule of thumb is, whatever traction you have when dry, there is less when wet.
