Had the same problem on the md80, for some reason best known to Douglas the nosewheel strut is mounted at a forward slant.
As a result in a tight turn the outside nosewheel will lift of the ground making steering very tricky especially on a wet or icy surface.
Turning onto a runway in boston we hit a slippery patch and nearly went off the side.
Bad design, same on the DC10 but that was the least of it's problems...
The best contribution to safety is a competent Pilot.
