Default Hello Folks....

This is Parag here from Pune. I came to know of the site through a friend...who could not stop talking about it. So I thought of checking for myself... this is quite woenderful site.

To start of conversation, I drive a Skoda Octavia 20v turbo TPI. I got my Skoda fitted with the Skoda RS Spec wheel/tyres ( Spider alloys, with 205-55 R16 Michellin Energy tyres). But I have a feeling that the Steering is a bit heavy something like the steering on those video racing games. Can changing of wheels have this effect ? or is there something more here.

Congratulations on the TPi; for someone who wants the most bang for the buck, its a steal in comparison to the RS. Yes, wider rubber will lead to a slightly stiffer steering + ride.

Welcome to the community. Do read the board rules section to understand our forum protocol better.

Is there a way to get the steering back to the original feel

Parag, looks like your query will get the required attention and response if you post it in the right section (tyres and alloys, may be).

You can create a new thread if none exists. I am sure there are many 1.8 TPI (Rider) owners here who should know.
