Just wondering if anyone out there has a comment to make regarding rear end loss on wet roads on an Elantra 5 door. Is it true that in wet conditions you can "loose" it? Do I have to change the tyres or something?
Someone must have had the same problem as me!!!

Try send ur car to a tyre shop to check the alignment, toe angle. Some tyres will also cause the problem, could try a better grade tyre.

I've driven my Elantra VE in heavy rain and snow on winding roads and find that it holds the road just fine. Had a couple of skids but the recovery was good.

The GT (5-door) has stiffer suspension so it is going to handle a bit differently. With less body roll, the weight of the vehicle is more evenly distributed on a tight corner insead of piling onto the outside wheels. That could make it a bit more inclined to "float" on a slick surface and the car is going to be a bit less forgiving if you overcorrect. A good set of all-season radials all around will give a better hold on the road if you don't mind a bit more road noise.

This is probly because my tires suck but I just have to do 35-40 on a dirt road and the rear end is all over the place, more so with faster turning. If it rains hard the car slows to under 60mph and won't (can't) get over 60mph, but this will be the only and last year with this set of tires.
