Re: new tires and issues with wet highways
flyfisher: We've recently had some very heavy rains in Northern California and, although it is not my E350 EB, my Bronco with Michelin LTX AT's has done fine on the freeway at 55 up to 65 mph driving in to work at 6:30 this morning. And just now another 30 miles back home on the freeway at 50 to 55 mph at 9:00 pm. When I mean heavy, I mean wipers at full speed and still sometimes not being able to see clearly and with cars spun out in the bushes (from hitting puddles in the right lane at speeds). I will check the tire pressure the van when I get a chance and when it is not raining and edit this post so you can compare.
