Hi. on my 98 xlt 2.5l, 5spd, 2wd, the tires are 15/70/225 with abt 1/2 life remaing(i think), bfg longtrail trail t/a. its been raining, misting, drizzle, etc.... Well on a dead stop I am hydroplaning big time, cant get going. i am not a fan of bfg in the 1st place, but thats besides the point. I dont have a lead foot.
Can it be the tires at the 1/2 way point that they start hydroplaning? or is it because of the rear wheel drive, light bed? I think its the tires. I shouldnt be hydroplaning(this much) in drizzle, mist, puddles, wet surfaces.
I was thinking abt going with Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S. Just keep in mind that I live in the northeast, >snow, sleet, rain, etc....
I read posts from others on tires but that did do me any justice. Sorry for long post. just wanna ask, state everything properly.
