Default Azenis + a day of heavy rain =

The biggest adrenaline rush I've ever had. Heading north on the south east expressway (boston) a large and deep pond had been accumulating throughout the day. Saw the splash from the car in front but had nowhere to go but through it. Front wheels definitely lost contact with the tarmac and became rudders. I let off the gas and did my best to keep it off the wall. I was slowly drifting toward the barrier until I made it though. Should I have kept on the throttle to pull through? Or maybe I should pay more attention to the warning with Azenis', " The tires are DOT highway certified but caution should be taken in wet weather." The rubber is only 2 weeks old for those wondering how much tread is left.



ps Roads in boston blow, how do you guys keep your 17's and 18's together?
