I previously had the stock tires that come with the brembo package, Pirelli 255/40/19. I recently switched to Hankook Ventus v12, but 275/40/19 all around. So far I love the tires. Questions is, does the wider tire in the front cause a little understeer? For some reason I feel like I'm getting more understeer with the wider tires rather than the 255's. Tires are 4 days old so i don't know if they still need to "break in" and get stickier. Thanks all!!

Sorry, I meant understeer. Those two get me confused Lolol. Basically when I'm taking a turn, it doesn't feel tight or "hugging the curb" so to speak, it kind of just takes a wider turn than wanted. Almost like its sliding in water.

Thats normal with wider tires up front. You will get use to it in a week or two. I love my 275 Invos

Any good suspension mods to correct this. I'm currently running eibach pro kits but that's no much of a big handling mod

Not really, 275s up front will cause this no matter what. Like I said its something you will have to get used to

I believe so, it's the rim that comes with the brembo package.
