Rat Micra new wheels and tyres...

New tyres on the wheels, looking forward to doing a brake upgrade now, hate the stock brakes.

The drive home I have to say was not bad, I went 175/60R14 tyres, Falkens, steering weight is not much more at all than the 165/70R13 that were on it, so I'm happy, it's tight as well, very little sidewall movement, but rides nice still.

I live up a Mt though, new tyres suck for the first 100kms or so, was understeering like a pig on that surface coating, looking forward to that wearing off...

Nice one, but there shouldn't be any steering weight, check there's nothing wrong with your power steering.

I went with 195's, stacked up, 3 are equal height as the 4 originals, this equated to a massive increase in footprint, and consequently put it on rails, it used to understeer, now it most definitely oversteers.

Will post a pic later :)

Lots wrong with my power steering, or not as is the case, cause it's a manual rack.

The Falkens on my car scrubbed in nice, serious grip, wear is looking a little on the scarey side though, very soft rubber, and I live on a very fast twisty Mt road, I'll be lucky if I see 10000kms on them.
