        Nothing falling from the sky here. Not even since I woke up.

        Now if you had said that yesterday...

            Well, according to lastnight, the rain was long gone and the skies were clearing....until the phantom rain ghost came out of nowhere this morning :lol: I still can't belive how much a tire can absolutly SUCK in the rain when it costs so much (Toyo FZ4..... it's like driving on ice even at full tread depth)

                  They may need some time to wear in properly. Everyone and every review I've seen have given them pretty good results in the rain...


                  Or maybe it's just operator error...

                    I'd be willing to bet that those have more traction. Hell, I was getting onto 285 and rolled into 4th and got wheel spin... then as I was turning off the highway the car started sliding out.. and I was going the same speed as every other car around me and wasn't even on the gas! ****s scary... but luckily i don't mind the car sliding out :cool:

                      If they are new, then the tires will need to shed their mold release and will be greasy until they do so. Also remember that wide tires on a light car will be much more likely to come out in the rain. My current tires are pretty decent in the rain, but I make it a habit to stay under atmo pressure.

                      I would not want Azenis in the rain. There are a couple cars around here that demonstrate why.

                        The tires had a couple hundred miles on them at most, they didn't have the mold release on them or the stripes.
                        Or the fact that the compound is that hard. Hydroplaning resistisance might be good, but they have no lateral grip whatsoever and the sidewalls are about has stiff as a wet paper bag :lol: I'll end up getting better tires and selling these.

                            LOL.. i jsut went to look up the prices on them..which have dropped a lot, but then again, it's been out for at least 8 years whichs is ancient for a tires and has not been redesigned. But it was listed as an all-season tire.... no ****ing wonder they suck!
