    Me and the esp seem to be fighting the car round every corner it is oversteering everywhere! The tire's are fine so i was just wondering if its a common thing for it to oversteer everywhere? It also does it on roundabout's in the wet. And no i dont drive like a nob ha ha. Cheers :)

    I have a similar issue, but my Contis are on the front and bridgestones on the rear iirc.

    Even worse in ice/snow as when the front attempts to break taction the power goes rearward and she steps out like a drift car,lol

    I'm using 245's on mine and it's terrible on snow or ice. Just have to be careful.
