Lets face it, its the M42 power that your tires just can't handle.
The worst part is that there is some truth in that...

All joking aside, my driving habits are apropriate to driving conditions. Yes there are times that i let it break loose but thats on my terms. Its not black ice i know what thats like.. I just find that with these mild temps the tires suck. When we had that cold snap car gripped great.

I get better traction from my winters when weather is in the below freezing. WHen we are in 5+ and i am running my winters, i seem to loose traction easier. Same happens with my gf's brand new winter set (VW rabbit)
