All the time...

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!|

Wheel Spin Wet Pavement
Anyone else having trouble spinning front wheels on wet pavement?
I am not a lead foot. But found it is too easy
To spin wheels when road is wet. When accelerating from a stop.
