It has new tires and this happens at a rate of speed around 35mph when wet. It also jerks especially in the rear end when ever you hit any flaw in the road it pulls to the left. Thank you for your initail response, James -

Yes poor tires, excess speed or bad shocks not keeping the tires firmly on the road. -
