It turns out that my Focus' transmisison computer decided to go off-line, and THAT, and NOT THE TIRES, was why the car was having so much trouble in the wet. <br><br>A quick computer reflash, and this car is great again. Sorry, Continental. My bad.

215/55-16: These tires on our Focus SE with Sport Pkg are still great in the dry, but today, after the rain stopped and the roads were just wet and cool, wet weather grip was just not what it used to be; several mild starts caused traction control to abruptly engage as the tires seemed to have trouble hooking-up, prompting me to do some testing in some corners, where I could feel the car sliding more than it used to (I checked tire pressure 2 days ago, when the weather was cold, and dry, and they were fine; tread depth is a uniform 8/32, and I rotate them with snow tires). Given the fairly sudden change in wet weather performance [maybe it's combined with the lower temps], I now hope that I'll be lucky to get a total of 20,000 miles out of these Continenals, or I'll replace them sooner if I feel that they're potentially dangerous on this family daily driver.
