    Default serious problem with corolla 2.0d 2001

    I have Dunlop LM701 175/65/R14 tyres with alloy rims. The problem is that the car skids too much. Its rediculous, a little pressure on the brake, and it will skid. A little acceleration, and it will skid. I am sick of it! I know people say every 2.0d has the problem but this is too much. The tyres have 25000km on them. I thought dunlop made good tyres, what is this then?

    Yeah, I know if i install big wide tyres with fancy big rims it might solve the problem. But it costs a lot. Plus, not every car out there has them, all cars that are brand new have either 175 or 165 tyres and General Ones. Why do they grip then?

    Well actually, they wont!And your tyres have 25,000ks on them, the radials tend to harden if not tended to properly.

    you should check your air pressure shold not exceed 32 lbs, 25000 km just nothing, I have KUMHO all season 175/70/13 on my 92 corolla, no skidding problem even in snow unless I do sharp turns or breaks in snow which is obvious. Tryes are rated for 100000 km warranty I have so far 45000 on it still good to go for another season. the new corolla available in North america has either 185/65/R15 or 195/65/R15 All season radials on it. for summer tires they come with 195/55R16 so I reccomend you to get last one, may solve your skiddig problem, Also your present tires, do they have any tread left over or they just get bald.

    I faced a similar prob with my Daewoo. Had new XP2000 175/70/14 tyres and they skidded whenever i braked slighter hard. No matter what the surface they skidded. Eventually i attributed the fault to the brakes as they tended to lock the discs/drums. Bleeding did'nt help so i gave up and braked cautiously. Your case sounds like either hardened rubber or less rubber contact patch with the ground. As your car is heavy it needs more rubber to stop. Accelarating skid can be attributed to excessive torque which all diesels have. As suggested above changing tyres and wheels might help.

    Get ur car aligned first. Then you can blame the tyres.
