I cannot keep my backend from sliding out in the rain no traction real bad what a good 245/50/14 tire that will do something better then having to drive like grandma off the line. It is so bad that I can get beet by a yugo off the line
My car has a 4:30 rear so as soon as I let the clutch out it slips its the rear thats kills me so a better tire might help a little but a 3:73 would also help. I have a 98 Ram Air and a 99 Ram Air on top of the supra I just wanted a better commuter car than a corolla so I went to A supra my Dads old type of car he had plus I am restoring two other Supras because these cars are great. Its just so bad in the rain I was actually going about 35 and changed gears in the rain and the back end kicked out. Thats bullshit I would hate to go back to the corolla a girls car but I have to do something
Do the tires first, before doing the diff ratio... With the stickier tires (now you see why we keep mentioning the Sumitomo's instead of these other tires w/ the 400+AB ratings), you will accelerate better out of the hole. And in some cases, the softer/stickier tires will grip better in the rain!!! Such is the case w/ my Yokohama A509's.
More reasons why we tell everyone to avoid some of these "other" cheap tires, like Cooper Cobra's or those Les Schwab Grand Am Radials. They just suck in some weather conditions.
Nawwww....My Les Schwab Grand Am's performed flawlessly this morning in our freak thunderstorm. They allow me to pretend I have 1000hp from idle to redline. Drifting with ease....with or without provacation. :?
"No Mr. Officer, I didn't do that on purpose. That was my car.....this time.)
Tires are everthing.I had a set of the old "Torque Twisters" on a 67 Dodge R/T.Went to leave the car wash,swapped ends with a throttle "BLIP"
Needless to say,the tires got sold very quickly,though not much better Radial T/A's were all I could get at the time.
