My Valver sits about -35mm all round with pretty much brand new Yokohama A539 tyres. The hanlding in the dry is simply stunning and I love it.
But in the wet its a different matter. Id appreciate your thoughts:
- When Im exiting roundabouts in 2nd gear (in the wet), I just get wheelspin all the time - and I slide too.
- Same story out on the roads in the wet. I just get wheelspin all the time and lose grip loads.
Just to give an example, it means that Im really afraid to power out of a rounabout when theres surface water - and I have to wait until Im doing about 40mph in a straight line to put the power down. And not that I do very often, but it means that I can never show the GTi next to me at the lights whos boss.
Now, I know Im running a high power FWD car here - but I expected my Yokos to cope better with this. Could this to be to do with either a) the fact I use tyre blackener stuff b) my front anti-roll bar mounts are dying a slow death and need to be replaced.
Help me, because Im not looking forward to the winter at this rate!!
