Grip



  • something is up with my steering, It feels loose. When I turn a sharp corner i can feel it juddering even at 20mph doesnt feel like its gripping

    Ive checked all bushes and there is no play and the trackrod end + ball joint is ok.

    I have 195/50/15 tyres on and thinking these are too thin aswell as thoughts on tracking may be out, will be going for a 4 wheel allingment sometime next month

    Any other thoughts to what this could, I am wanting to go to a track day soon but dont wanna go straight threw a corner with over steer



  • 205/55/R15 are stock size bud.



  • @18f0504b73=Lori:

    205/55/R15 are stock size bud.

    Not on 15 inch wheels they aren't. 195 /50/15 is standard….....

  • Hmm, interesting. I've never put anything but 195's on 15's.



  • According to here: http://specs.amayama.com/mazda/eunos_presso/1993_9/

    They range from

    185/65R14 86H
    to
    205/55R15 87V

    I made a post a while ago about correcting a speedo and was told I had the wrong size wheel on (running 205/50/R15



  • When I get my new springs and negative camber I think I might be going for the tightest fit I can find to give some streeeetch :lol:



  • **For reference, my two are both standard and:

    V6 - 205/55R15 on 6JJx15
    SE - 205/55R15 on 7JJx15

    Oh and Ven can't tell the date and is here this week if you want to come over and take part/have things done.**

    Drag racing at the weekend :D He might still be here the next one though.



  • and on topic about the grip?



  • **Well, since we've eliminated your tyre size as a problem and you don't think there's any play in vital suspension components…

    Check your caster adjusters (the lip on the topmount - stock has them both pointing inwards). A 4-wheel alignment check is a good, free peace-of-mind check (though they're free to check, if they need adjusting they won't be). If you have worn (or cheap) tyres (or Pirelli P6000s) you might experience the same symptoms.

    Mechanically you might have shagged ARBs, a shot CV joint (particularly if it happens more noticeably in one direction - check the outside one) or a knacked wheel-bearing (though you'd spot that in normal driving, unless you think blending spanners is a good noise for a car).

    Incidentally, if you plough straight through a turn, it's understeer.

    I'd also note that the 205 section tyres used as stock on the V6 are really pushing the edges of what you should try and put on a 6" rim - they're an 8" tyre!**

    I have been hearing a squek from the front may well be the bearing ;)

    Will try find a free allingment garage to see if it needs dont

    pretty sure the CV's are fine though will double check that
