Is this normal to happen to my tires in rain?

This only happens when it's raining our the roads are still damp-

When I take off from a stoplight, or even from my parking lot at school, my back tires skid. Say I'm taking off to make a left turn, it'll still be skidding through some of the turn.

I said something about this on a reply to on of my last threads. If it makes a difference, my ABS is out, and my traction control doesn't come on. There's no light on the dash saying my traction is off, but nothing happens when I press the button.

Anybody know what this could be?

I'm taking it to my me mechanic Monday to check out the breaks to see if I need new break pads ( I want to make sure it's break pads that I need) would he be able to tell if something's not right when he goes to look at that? He's looking at it for free since my stepdad spends so much money with him lol.

Yep mine do it all the time. It means your tires need replaced cause they are drying out.

I agree with all these guys. Sounds like your back tires are pretty much junk. I have the same problem in the rain and mine are pretty bald and a little dry rotted

Lol its a rear wheel drive car. Mine does the same. Takes a second to get traction when the tires are cold.

meh, mines a 1995 so I'm use to not having traction control and ABS. You probably just need new tires, I only rotated my rear tires so when I bought new tires the front ones had plenty of life left, and the rears were bald.

Mines an 04 v6, new tires, rotated on schedule, no TC and it still does that on wet roads. its part of having a rear wheel drive car, you just gotta be a little easier getting into the throttle when it's wet

there's this intersection i always had to go through on my way to school, if it was raining and I even slightly tapped the gas my, tires would spin and i'd start to roll backwards... I had to let it idle it's self forward a little bit. It would of probably been harder if I had a manual.
I got new tires now though, so maybe I wouldn't roll back lol.

It takes a lot less to do it in our sixxers than you would think (when wet at least) because, while we don't have a lot of power, every bit of power we do have goes to that one wheel.

its not about good or bad tires, my tires are almost new and still does the same, as some of the guys said its a rear wheel drive car and its normal, but if you have traction control and working it will prevent the tires from doing that, i have a TC in my car but because my ABS is off so the traction is off automatically which will let the tires to spin in the wet roads.
basically you need to fix your ABS to make the TC work again.

Well, I never even knew how to check the tread on my tires before. I finally found out what to look for today, and all of my tires except the rear left tire are pretty bare. I'm thinking that could be a big part of it. Lol
