i posted a while back about my catera sport having a bad case of tramlining on any sort of lengthwise ruts in the road. steering wheel would pull left and right w/ a mind of it's own. 4 wheel alignment didnt help at all.

well, i increased tire pressure from 32 to 35 and all my problems are solved!

the 17" sport tires are nominally rated to a higher PSI, but most shops go with a softer pressure for ride comfort. just an additonal 3psi is all it took. sure...the ride is a skosh firmer, but i'd much rather that than deal w/ flying into a ditch due to a moment's inattention.
