If by sway you mean the wind blowing it, that's normal for a barn with wheels.


I never knew sway meant that you lost traction on the road.

Vanilla just hunkers down on her rain tires, grits her teeth, and zips right along in the rain. Very stable, no hydroplaining, very good braking/cornering. (Since I live in rain country - Seattle area - that was one of the requirements when I dumped my OE tires at just a few thousand miles. Those Goodyears were like driving on greased owl **** about 2/3rds of the time.)
