Crashed my Baby

It was wet out (yes, I had trac off) and lost the back end in the right hander near my dad's house. I hit the a tree pretty hard with passenger side rear door. Fortunately, I'm OK and nobody else got hurt. It was pretty dark so it was hard to tell how focked the car was.

I know I'll get flamed for asking this, but yesterday I got new tires (S-03). Last night, I washed my car. I armor all'ed the sidewalls and thought since the tires were new I would put armor all over them so the whole tire would be jet fockin' black. It looked hella sweet. You guys don't think this might have caused my wreck, do you? I know Armor All is a little slick but I wonder if there was something else wrong with the tires also, or something?

Armor All could of definitely have been part of the problem...Especially driving in wet conditions afterwards

I am pretty sure there is a warning specifically against that as well as putting it on the steering wheel, your face, your genitals, etc.

I am 100% positive that was what caused it. Good job man. Nice to know that you could have easily prevented this accident if you weren't such a moron.

Who's a fat piece of shit?

You are an absolute fool.

Yes - the armor all is the cause of your accident. Of course, the fact that you were an idiot at the wheel with traction control off in the rain means that you were bound to crash eventually. Maybe the armor all saved your life by not allowing you to get up to speed before plowing yourself into stationary objects.

Hmm... I covered my tires in slick liquid - do you think that could hurt traction? I hear that sraying Pam on your brake rotors makes them look 'hella sweet' maybe that will be your next detailing project.

You guys don't have to be such fockin dicks. There was probably somthing wrong with them anyway if they caused the wreck. I'm gonna go down to NTB and complain this afternoon.

You think you're funny, HoustonGGP, why don't you meet somewhere tomorrow night and tell me and my boys about it, brah.

There was nothing wrong with the damn tires. Well, nothing wrong until you LUBRICATED the traction surfaces!

How are you going to blame this on a prefectly good tire. The only way you'd have a chance os if the tire physiclally failed - blew out or threw its tread.

And if you're planning on meeting HoustonGPP, please take public transportation and keep the streets safe for the rest of us.

Hmm yeah thats realistic. Don't be another chat forum tough guy. Those guys won't have armorall on their tires too will they? If so they may be late for our date :roll:

You must be in highschool. If not I feel sorry for that thing you call your "maturity level". You even admitted you'd get flame. Enjoy it and move on.

WTF

I was hoping to get some real opinions. Not be called a moron.

Whether putting AA on the tires was stupid (probably so) or even caused the wreck (probably not), i'm still the one that got focked here.
