1998 SL
2000 SW2
Default SW2- Front wheel gets grabbed in rain puddles/rain-filled truck

When highway driving in the rain (45mph+) our 00 SW2s front left wheel gets pulled very easily and suddenly by puddles and ruts. I put brand new tires on it, and it helped the situation, but it still happens and scares my wife when she is driving.

My 98 SL does not seem to have this issue, even with narrower tires.

Anything else I can check on the car?

...
1996 SL2 - 2011 to 2015

1998 SL - 2017 to current

2000 SW2 - 2018 to current

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Worn ball joints in the outer tie rod ends and likely the lower control arms will do that.
