The Contis are the problem alright. I have the TripleTreds and recently had to do a full-on hammer the brakes stop in pissing rain and 5 degrees C and the ABS barely activated. I'm sure that I would have hit the car in front of me if the Contis were still on the Tribute.kmoose said:40000 miles on the Conti-tracs is a huge part of the problem. Probably time for new tires. Try the Michelin Cross Terrains, Firestone Destination LE or AT (depending on how much noise you want, ATs are louder but more rugged) or Goodyear TripleTreads.scashaggy said:Hmmm. Well, at least everything is working. Although the ABS did almost have me collide with something.
Is there a particular tire that would help with stopping in wet conditions?
