Hi all,

Hopefully this is the right section to post. I've searched for related topics but my "Google-fu" isn't that great, feel free to point me in the right direction.

I was ranting to my brother about the freeway onramp near my house because if I'm not being very careful (steady <30 mph) I'll feel the back tire break loose. He immediately called me and told me that shouldn't happen, I need to turn down the power and replace the tire with something track worthy.

I'm confident it's just that specific spot because I don't feel it in the other onramp lane, or any other corner I take tight and hard but I figure I should just ask you guys.

Has anyone else had issues with the stock Scorchers?

They’re Michelins in every sense. Totally fine if you’re comfortable with Michelin characteristics. As OE tires, you could do a lot worse.

I presume that you’re not driving in the center of the lane. I always avoid lane centers on ramps, intersections, etc — any place where cars can be dripping oil.

Thanks @detansinn

Like you, I avoid the center of the lane. But your comment got me thinking and I realized a lot of people cut the corner on this onramp and I vaguely remember seeing paint, like someone lost a paint can, at that same spot years ago.

At this point I'm going to change my driving habits to just avoid the slick lane, and when I'm due for a new tire I'll get something stickier.
