torque steer...

After installing 18" wheels and having a complete alignment...I'm noticing two things different with the car. It seems to have considerably more torque steer under acceleration...and it seems to have more road noise coming from the rear wheels/bearings/tires. I checked the bearings when I changed brake rotors recently and they are fine. Anyone else experience this?

yes....more torque steer because rims and heavier and tires are lower profile (you'll feel it more)

same reason for more noise--its attributed to the lower profile tires and also tire brand (some tires are quieter than others)
Got it...thanks.
