Default steering tight for zen

thx adi99 for apt reply.

currently I hold stock tyres (145/70r13) for my 2000 lx model zen. With this I felt steering is too tight man. (its a lx) But rode some 2 other zens (zen lx ) felt lots play and free steering. What can be reason. Tyres have run 25k km half bald -

I used to put 26psi for most times in city ride, except while i fully load and move on highways its 28-30 psi.

and where on earth can I get mesh type headrest for my zen

And yes, with 60 profile, there will be a little compromise on ride comfort but handling is good.

Check the alignment first. There may be problem with caster/camber. If the alignment is ok with no problems, then you can take it to any garage and ask them to adjust the steering damper (I think this is what it is called, they go under the car and adjust it )

Ive got 185/55 R14 Yoko s.Drive for my zen. My previous tyres were Ventus 195/45. The yoko looks much wider than the hankook Ventus. The tyres are scaraping the wheel wells when there are 4 on-board, though i have dual suspension at the back.

At the front it scrapes on the front fenders when my steering is fully turned to a side.

What i felt S.drives are far better than Ventus, though i have some problem with the size.
