Re: New Tires. Now my steering feels loose.
I think the BFG AT's have an extra ply in the side wall, that will give them a stiffer feeling.
But I have always gotten that squirrely feeling with brand new tires.
With the old worn out tires the tread is all worn down so you don't get any side to side movement (from the tread), with new tires you have about 1/2" deep tread which has some give to it.... the tread will stick to the road but the 1/2" thick tread will sort of squish around between the road and the steel belts in the tire carcass.
