That's weird. If I go full power from a stop and turn at the same time, I get a tiny bit of wheel spin, but if straight ahead and dry road, no problem. I got my replacement Ecopias last fall and I don't recall that they were worse at first. However, my memory is TERRIBLE! :D

Sigh...wife rear-ended an F-150...slid under the right rear corner, peeled the Leaf LF fender back to the A pillar. $5,700 damage.
Tire was damaged, so...at 26k miles, replaced all 4 tires with Ecopia 422+, OEM size.
MUCH quieter than the well-worn OEM tires, seem much more compliant, as well. Too early to tell if there will be mileage loss. It'll be hard to tell anyway, as all our driving is <30mph, stop-and-go.
FYI, repair job was superb, new hood, bumper, LF fender, excellent paint match, still zero rattles in the cabin, tracks perfectly straight. Impossible to tell it was repaired, and I've got a very critical eye. ;)
