    I had a bit of tire vibration when I first picked up my WRX as well but it went away quickly after I put some miles on it. Just keep an eye on it and if it doesn't improve then I recommend you head over to the dealer. Congrats to you as well!

    My steering and tire feel all even out after 1200 miles; mostly highway. Just had the summer tires removed today and all-season tires (lessor Kumho 4X tires) installed. I will post a report on how well the new tires feel after I get to drive the car some on the weekend. I commute every day on my BMW K1600GT so the car is just my all weather vehicle used mostly for trips and shopping runs.

    Thank you for your input. I feel a little better reading your comments. I called the dealer and am heading over at the end of the week to have them take a look just to be safe. All your advice is greatly appreciated.

    I pretty much just stick with tracks days now.
    Yep, I found WERA was much faster than the other regional race orgs as well as CCS. Bet you would find "slower" competition if you raced a SV650. Agreed on track days, safer, slower, etc. O to be young again....
