Coming back from my daughters the other day with light rain and wet roads I took a roundabout maybe a little bit too quickly. I know if I'd been driving her Golf there wouldn't have been a problem, and it's not fair to compare the two cars, but halfway around the island the tyres let go and I had to perform a couple of quick "lock to lock" manoevres to keep Zippy on course! It wasn't particularly scary, but it wasn't the most dignified way to go around a traffic island either! I don't remember having had any such problems with my old 800, and I'm pretty sure I drove it in much the same way as I do this one, so I wondered what other peoples thoughts were. Just my reckless driving, or the effects of the mixed rubber, or a combination of both? The tyres are a selection of makes I've never heard of except one Dunlop, each wheel having a different brand (but all with good treads) They're the tyres that came on the car when I bought it, and the only excuse for not changing them is trying to save a bit on funds.
