Could be the tires, but if it is then the stock continentals it came with must be really awful. I had traction issues even when they were new. The last time it happened I was truly shocked at how little gas it took to slip in the rain at a light. Normally I barely give it any because I know how poor the traction is, but I gave it a tiny bit more that time just to pull ahead of a minivan and that's all it needed for the rear tires to break loose. I can drive it safely in the rain without going sideways, but I have to really baby the throttle and slowly roll off at each light. I cant use any of the cars power for a good portion of the year here.
