Wow took my dads 325ci to get the rear tires changed to frecking falken ziex (stupidest mistake i could have ever done.) The steering on the car is soooooo much loser after the tire change. Could these idiots have done something to the car or something. BTW wow these tires suck!!!!!!

Tires are the single best way to increase performance so crappy tires could easily screw performance.

Performance tires have a break in period. They'll generally be very floaty, loose, and slippery for the first 500-1000 miles of use.

I'd take that into consideration before claiming that a particular tire or brand sucks.

I put on Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3s last week and I am experiencing the same problem... it's like my steering rack had 20lbs taken off it or something, hah. I guess I'll wait for them to break in.
