I think my rain traction is poor. I put two 50lb bags of sand in the bed over where the rear axle is (it is a ranger with a 500lb limit). And I will probably have to look at new tires. What should I look for in new tires for rain traction? Is rain traction listed variable or is it just a standard characteristic of most tires? What else can I do aside from get new tires and put sand in the back? Is 100 lbs of sand enough?
I drive pretty safely, i just have trouble when turning. The truck can slide sideways when I turn a corner in the rain. Plus if I am braking while going downhill in the rain I may not be able to stop in time.
