Re: Wheels Grabbing and Jerking Me To The Side on Snow Patches

My tires on there at the moment are garbage @oragex. That's gotta have something to do with it. It's got 160k miles.. but it's in really good shape. The AWD works like a champ in every other condition I've tested it in - incredible traction and control even with crappy tires. I'm now thinking that maybe because my tread is so thin and they're not winter rubber, when I'm hitting those patches at speed it's causing them to totally slip, and then when it hits pavement again it grabs and jolts back into place. Makes sense. Thanks everyone for your help!
