I was doing 130mph in a steady downpour at VIR on an already saturated track. (no hydroplaning) These are race quality rain tires. VERY NICE !

be for good..thanks for the good feedback! Sounds like a good Oregon set up! I\'m at 9k miles, looking pretty thick still with the Pilots. I\'ve been impressed with the M3\'s ability to stay stable on wet pavement. I\'m sure it\'s a lot to do with DSC. I keep it on 95% of the time, and have lost my rear end about 4 times(and I\'m due for first paid service at 12k miles, so I know I\'m not babying her too much)

I wonder if all the wet miles I\'ve put in so far(took delivery Nov2, been wet probably 50% of time on roads) have been easy on tires, as opposed to dry warm months. Has anybody ever done research on the wear on tires on wet vs dry conditions? Seems like they wouldn\'t wear as much on moisture, logically thinking. Less scrubbing?<br>

delivered. I NEVER use DSC. Even on the drive home in 3 inches of snow and a race slick on the front, no DSC. If I had put on DSC, I would have crashed.

started snowing I turned DSC on. I was driving along and the DSC light started blinking. Even with my foot OFF the gas is started doing weird [Oops!] to the back end, almost made the car spin.
