Comment:
Tires are dangerous in wet weather. The tires came as OE on my 2014 Explorer. The Explorer has been perfect other than these tires. I tool the vehicle back to the dealer to check the stability control system and the antilock brake system.<br /><br />The vehicle was difficult to stop on wet roads and even moderate acceleration caused tire spin and the vehicle to move laterally. I replaced these tires as soon as I could find replacements of that size (waited for delivery of tires 3 months) The replacement tires resolved the traction issues.
