some times you can get little stones stuck in the tread of good tyres making some of them useless in the wet as the tread wont disperse the water

re: Out with the old, in with the new (my punto mk2a progress thread)

well got a new car sorted wich i baught off here for £350. 3door punto same engine as my 5door. sorted out the insurance so its swaped over to my new car and when the documents come threw they say iv 1years no claims still. then says on the incients section. 13/10/9 accident........fault, cost not claimed by insurer.

Just out of interest, name and shame the tyres you were using. At 205-width on something as light as a Punto, the potential for aquaplaning is high. When I switched from 155 Pirelli P3000s to 185 Yokohama A539s, dry grip was fantastic, but wet grip was just awful. It was a case of grip...grip...let go completely! And I struggled to catch it when this happened. I then switched to Yokohama s.Drive tyres, and they are great in the dry, and really progressive and predictable in the wet. I've not had a single slide-induced scary moment with them on the corners.

Yeah i know that now lol.grip was bril in dry weather.but like you say grip is very minor limited in wet. I wont be going so wide on my new punto. Was also a paxn gettin wheels on that wide.had to use 2cm spacers and open arches. Money i spent on getting the wheels and getting them on the car i could have got a decent set of new alloys!

re: Out with the old, in with the new (my punto mk2a progress thread)

£350 quid? Thats cheap, what was wrong with it?

Also I have really wide tyres now and in the wet my back end is always trying to slide out on round-a-bouts etc. not nice losing it though! I did twice in the ice, luckily 1st one a curb stopped me (damaging my alloy though) and 2nd wasn't as bad just slid sideways :P (10 MPH aswell!)
Thanks chrisgrice18 thanked for this post
