Re: Oversteer in my 147
Tyres not bedded in. And now will need careful running to negate odd behavior in first few miles. See quote below...
"When you replace a pair of tyres, that end of the car should see an improvement in grip under most circumstances. The temptation is, therefore, to immediately go out and let rip with some gooning. However, a word of caution: new tyres often come with a coating that can take a few hundred miles to wear off. This coating is designed to protect the tyre from the environment, so basically itís water resistant - which can cause some anxious moments in the wet! Itís important to be a little patient with the tyres and slowly get used to their behaviour, and perhaps adjust the tyre pressures since different tyres can behave differently to tyre pressures."
