Sup all! If I'm going straight and I make a sharp turn (going like 20-25Mph) the cutty wants to keep going straight and makes the tires screech. I'm sure thats not supposed to happen, the tires are fairly new but the front are pretty worn from 3 wheeling. a couple weeks ago (when they were on a different car) I filled them to 40psi? is the proble them pressure or maybe I need new tires but the tread looks good. I don't know. Please help :confused:

I was going like 20Mph (maybe slower)?!?! This never happened with the truck you see in the aviatar. I know its lighter, but is this normal? A cutlass ain't all that big compared to lacs, impalas, etc? :dunno:

You might want to check your alignment also.

The wheels are too small for that car. Lowrider magazine, even recmmends 14 inch wheels on lows if you actually drive them in traffic and 13's for show.

If the ground was wet from the rain, I could understand hydroplaining and sliding. But if the ground wasn't wet. The wheels are too small for the car..Upgrade before you wreck especially at 20MPH, that shoudn't be happening.

If you have hydraulics then it could be from all the extra weight in your trunk. I have to keep the back up a little higher than the front to keep this from happening to my cutty. If you don't have juice then I would really consider taking your car to the shop for an alignment.

I've had 13's on my '94 Fleetwood for some time now, and have never slid. If you got a lowrider you roll low and slow. You don't take it around a corner like you would a race car. ;)
lol :biggrin:

when i was rolling bald 15"s in my caprice i pulled a slow right hand turn in the rain and smacked into a cement divider! I turned right, but it went perfectly straight, the car didnt even think about turning until i was on top of that divider, luckily it was only 6-8" high! i was lucky, its not worth saving money by riding on bald tires :cool:
