I have a 2007 Nissan Altima 2.5S with Kelly Edge A/S 215/60R16 tires. They have about 13,000 miles on them and recently notice that they slide/skid in wet/rainy weather. In fact, in June this year I tried stopping on a wet street and slip into the car in front of me. Not good. Does anyone know if the problem is with the type of tires, or is it just the Altima.

There is absolutely NO such thing as a car that won't slide in the rain if you are going too fast for the conditions at the time.

SLOW DOWN is what the car is telling you.

Check the inflation...too high or too low will make them skid sooner than usual. Otherwise as above, nothing wrong with the tires or car...most likely the driver.

I like Michelin tires, but having the tires of some other brand and driving even a small number of miles, it would not be superfluous to check their condition for wear. Usually there are protrusions on the tires, and you can check the condition of the rubber by millimeters of the height of these protrusions. In any case, your driving style and road surface can individually affect the tire wear rate.
