Thanks. Always a bummer that there's not really a way to try before you buy with tires (though with enough forethought I guess it shouldn't be necessary).

I've seen a bit about tramlining with wider front tires. In your experience, for a car that's a DD, how bad is it? Are we asking too much of the stock power steering system? Also, I assume your rubbing was on the outside edge of the tire and camber brought the tops in to avoid? Assuming your wheels were 9.5", ET 26 should be a bit farther in already?
