Q I have just bought my first attic. Would radial tyres cut down or increase skidding or jack-knifing?

AIf there were any reduction in skidding
or jack-knifing (the two are linked) when radial cord tyres were fitted, this could be marginal only. We have seen no claims in this respect by tyre manufacturers and can see no justification for specifying this particular type of tyre solely for the reason you give.
