    Dodgy steering on my coupe turbo?

    Just wondering if anyone else has expereinced problems with steering on their coupes? I know obviously fwd wiv 200bhp + low profiles, light steering etc... BUT when driven hard steering seems to pull quite badly even on some decent surfaces and almost feels like wheels are gonnna fall off I'm sure they're not but still someting doesn't feel quite right???Prob worth saying tread on tyres is getting quite low(still legal but not a lot of tread)- waiting for 18" alloys with toyos. anyone wiv similar problems??

    Some tyres pull like buggers when the tread wears out. It's called tramlining.

    You could have a problem. Mines the same, and i'm booked in for a new lower arm and track rod end on front left, then needs full wheel alignment and tracking done!
