    Hi All, Finally got the 17" wheels fitted & car lowered. Looks really good now. It certainly gets a lot of looks from other drivers and passes by.Anyway the car feels a bit heavy on the stearing, is this normal?The tyres are 225/45/17 & i'm running the tyre pressures at 34psi as recommended as a starting point by the supplier. I have had sports springs fitted with 5mm shims all round but left the alignment for a month to let the springs settle as advised.The car is going in for the laser treatment next Saturday so has anyone got any suggestion on laser settings etc or do the standard settings apply? The car is a 99 c180 classic, manual box, no aircon. Ill try and get a picture on here soon so you can give me your verdict on it if you want. Any advice will be very greatfully recieved. Thanks in advance.......Mike
