I had a problem similar to this about a year ago. I was headed to a concert in the pouring rain on the highway and I started to fishtail. I knew before then that I needed new tires since my rears were almost bald. My front tires were brand new. Apparently the people that put them on for me didn't know what they were doing because they put the good tires on the front and at the time, I didn't know any better either. If I went over 55mph in that rain I would fishtail. So I had to drive about 50mph on a 70mph highway while trying to make it to a concert on time.
