: Trammeling is what you are talking about and it is not caused by your steering. It is caused mostly by your tire size. Being wider than most street tires they don't "fit" the warn in groove in the streets very well. A strut brace could help a little but it's something you will need to learn to deal with depending on your local road conditions.

: With the larger than stock tires I run and the increased stiffness of my suspension it is VERY pronounced to the point of having the wheel "ripped" one time from my hands when coming to a stop and a very bad piece of local road. Needless to say I watch the ruts in the street closely and avoid these roads as much as possible.

: -Karl

have summed it up perfectly. I have 235ZR17's on the front, and have definitely experienced the pull/rip of the steering wheel due to imperfections in the road. What are the other benefits of a strut brace (WHETHER IT HELPS THIS PROBLEM OR NOT, and can you recommend a good one for me??
