    Vehicle : Insignia VX-line RED Tourer

    Trim : No, over weight!

    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Year : 1 A.D

    Mileage : Rising

    Default Tracking

    Should i have my car re - tracked after fitting 19" snowflakes from the standard 17" Sri wheels ?
    I have noticed the 'tram lining' alot more (as expected ) but theres a lot more torque steer than expected and 'squirming' under heavy breaking.
    Is this all down to the tracking with bigger wheels on or dosn't it make any difference ?


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    it should'nt need it !? i have mine checked after being lowered ! but you will notice more tramlining ! its unavoidable with wider tyres and a smaller amount of rubber between rim and road matey !!

    Went to Micheldever Tyres last week and they managed to knock the tracking out trying to take the wheel off!

    £20 to have tracking checked can save alot more than that on tyre costs I reckon.

    The cost of tracking against the cost of tyres? Git it done mate. Have a full laser 4 wheel alignment done, chances are it will be out anyway. IMO money well spent
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    You shouldnt need tracking done unless you are lowering the car. But if in doubt get it done. I have mine rechecked every 6-12 months !!

    19" wheels will tramline more for sure.... and they will squirm under heavy braking...

    You wanna try 6-Pot AP Racing Brakes from high speed to a dead stop breaking manouver... Its like a Gym workout just trying to stay in the seat... lol .... I swear if I ever hit a pot hole whilst braking hard it would set the airbags off !!

    ^^ lol...

    It could also be down to the tyres, wide pattern directional tread tyres are known for tram-lining
