I had a "Tokyo Drift" moment as I was making a U-turn in a tight parking lot yesterday. It was drizzling, no standing water, 9500 miles on the tires. I'm just going to blame myself for taking the turn too fast. And since I can't afford a new set of nice all-season. It was fun, actually.

also, i should mention. i do have plenty of driving experience in the rain. i dont drive like a lunatic. im actually the guy who drives five miles under the speed limit and is very cautious. i also race cars as well (dry and rain), so i know how to control a car very well than most people and i know how to react to under/oversteer.
