All the time. Unfortunately I am a lead foot. I also race my other car, so I have to adapt when I get into our van. Not only is there serious wheel spin coming off the line with a quick reaction, which I have, but also at the limits of turns. Going on the highway from me, we enter on a curved ramp that joins a connecting highway to a main interstate, and when it's damp or wetter, the tires lose traction below the speed limit around 50-55mph, and I have to baby the throttle.

I am trying to get the most out of the tires before I put some better rubber on, but hitting those limits really makes me itch to do it sooner.

turbomikestr Unfortunately, or maybe I should say fortunately, spinning the tires is one of the great side effects of owning a Move Over Power Approaching Rapidly (MOPAR)!

hawkfan This is pretty much all the fault of the tires. OEMs arent' known for putting the most high quality rubber on general purpose vehicles. You will notice a vast night & day difference in both performance and longevity after you swap them out for a quality set of shoes. The sidewalls may say Michelin or Nexxen but I don't think the compounds are quite the same as what you'd get from your local tire shop. I believe they're of lower quality made to improve the ride softness and quiet road noise more than for performance and handling.

wisejd Just happened to me yesterday again... I really have to depress lightly to avoid signifiant spinning... Can't wait for the snow and ice!
