hi all . i have a problem with the wheel alignment on my EB . ever since i put on a set of BF XR8(i think that's them ) wheel's the steering has been funny . under normal driving it pull's to the right, hit a bump in the road it pulls to the left , hit the brakes hard and it zig zags. took it to the tyre shop hooked it up to the alignment computer and it show's that it is steering strait .we (shop guy and my self )can't see anything wrong with the front end. i need to fix this as my wife drive's the car

are you using hub adaptors?

if so, are they centered on the wheel with hub rings?

Are the tie rod ends OK ?
Are the hub adapters providing the correct offset ? The BF rims are 8" wide,
what was the previous rim ?
Is the car on lowered springs, and are you running a camber kit up front ?

Have had this problem before. Two words: s**t tyres. Bad tyres can cause "tramtracking" ie following every little line in the road. Tyre pressures can cause this too but not to the same extent.
