    Those tires suck..........Goodyear has not made them for awhile...........
    they're probably hard as a rock
    Also, sounds like time for some suspension mods....................and
    most of all...........don't know what you drove before but I would get used to the power the car has before trying anything spirited................as you found out.

    depends on waht you want... if you want better contact on all conditions, shocks is a must... you can get shocks + springs @ same time, if budget permits... but good shocks is what wil bring it up to par... good tires will help in the traction department as well, obviously.
