I don't think the wider tires will solve my problems, they will just mask it by raising the bar. I don't have too much problems with "push" as in mid-corner understeer once I set up the turn right, it's more the turn in and the first quarter of the turn. I also have about 1.5 * more rear camber than in the front. Remember I have IE's, and they slam the back of my early arch car (tire is starting to tuck). I think the rear will go up once I put konis, my shocks are blown back there.

Play with tire pressures, align more toe-out, maybe get an M3 rear bar.

I'm telling you, getting proper grip up front really helps. If it's actually a turn-in issue though, the other stuff I said will help a lot more.

Well, going on what I've read on R3V, Charlie was having a similar issue and eliminated it with more camber. It can't hurt.

I'm likely to be running the 205/45 R16 tires that came on the borbets for the first part of the summer, they still have a decent amount of life left. Either that or a dedicated set of R-comps on my basket weaves.

Heh, I never even got to try those tires out. Can't believe how close they came to mounting without spacers...

I haven't tried them either. I finally got my 15mm hubcentric spacers, now I just need the rings and summer weather. One of the wheels has a small bend on the inside though, need to have it straightened.

Tom, I totally forgot about that bend. The MKIII guy I bought them from insisted that there would be no vibration whatsoever; try them first.
