Sorry about the accident. I had always heard don't ever drive in the rain with drag radials, glad you will be going back to the stock tires for daily driving.

[]sorry to hear that moose! wont the insurance company give you c*** for the D/Rs and blame you for having them on?
They would if they knew, but there is no police report and i'm not telling them. I'm putting the stockers back on tomorrow. The lip of the drivers side rear rim was damaged slightly, but they are 17x9's from American muscle and i'm not too concerned about them.

No, just remove the rear spoiler, i like the rest of the car. I said i'm not going to restripe it, but my wife said why not, we can do it better the second time. I still might leave it with no stripes.

circumstances.....

Cruise control and slick conditions (especially with tires not made for rain) = dangerous conditions.
Not to be an *** moose, but Im going to say having the cruise control on was 90% to blame.
