Re: 05 STI Handling issues

You'd be amazed at the difference poor tyres make to the handling of a car. I went from Potenzas (decent and pricey) which I found to have poor grip unless very warmed up to Dunlops, and the difference was night and day. The Dunlops just grip so much better, and that is between 2 premium tyres.

Also have you checked that the suspension is sound? If you have a shock on the way out that will cause all sorts of handling issues. Would say though that the symptoms you list suggest issues at all 4 corners so I wouldn't be a bit surprised if it was the tyres.
