: You're not just talking about the tug on the wheel when you hit a puddle, are you? You mean you're actually losing contact with the road surface, right? I ask this because some cars don't give much of any feedback through the steering column --- even when they are hydro-planing. Just mentioning to make sure you're not confusing the torque you feel in the wheel with the contact you may or may not have on the road.

: BTW, how cold was it? I believe performance of tires in rain is tied to temperature as much as pattern. My .02

Mid 60's

: Also, were your wiper-blades exposed to intense heat/sunlight or 0-zone? Like other posters, I've found the blades/wipers to be generally superior.

I have only had the car for 10 months and I had them change around 2 months ago, so the blades are fairly new. Ill check for dirt.
