    Default Hankook Ventus Prime are ......

    ...................rubbish in the WET!

    I got 2 x Hankook Ventus Prime's on the front of the Vec-B and yesterday I noticed the car sliding round a corner under pretty much hardly any throttle, didnt think nothing of it as it was piddling down.

    Anyway, this morning, went round a corner and give it some light welly again, nothing more than normal and my car has NEVER understeered so badly, I actually drifted off in the opposite lane, luckily no one was there! So I tried it again around nearly every other corner on route to work and same situ!

    This is pretty much the first bout of wet whether we have had since I have had them on and they are absolutely in the wet!

    Anyone else noticed this with this brand?

    Hopefully when I upgrade to 17's I wont have this problem as I have got 2 x Bridgestone Potenza's and 2 x Nankang's ready and waiting to go on!


    Bye bye Vec B

    I'm not saying they are good but remember we have had a hot dry spell and so it is slippier after rain than if it was raining all the time....
