Narrowbody Handleing

I have a narrowbody 2.0 that suffers from really bad oversteer on fast country road type corners. It also appears to be wearing the outside edges of the rear tyres (although, this may be a red herring as ive just bought the car and dont know the history of the tyres). Can anyone shed any light on this?

Thumbs Up Re: Narrowbody Handleing

Speedy's likely spot on...again. Check the front wheel tracking. It could have had the front tyres moved to the rear. It happens sometimes when some fool adjusts the tracking when front wishbones/bushes are worn. Then, another fool fits new wishbones without checking the tracking!
