Re: front spinns rear is sliding! ?!?
I am using 195/50 on 15" teledials. My front tyres are Goodyear (not F1's), they are ok but a little prone to wheelspin on fast getaways. My rear tyres are Michellin pilot exalto's (from costco no less).
I find the handleing is spot on, the front end just grips no matter how hard i push it into a corner. That all changes in the rain though. Understeer is a little too easy and i find myself winding on a lot more on the steering wheel on roundabouts.
As far as i know, all cars based on this chassis have been known to have poor wet weather handeling. And yes, the rear end is supposed to be allowed to swing out if necessary.
