I definitely notice the same thing on the highway with my Scion iA. I think it's the wind blowing the car around. My last car was a Mk VI GTI and that was impervious to wind but it weighed about 800lbs more than the iA. Before that I had a 97 Camry and I remember that could be a handful too on the highway when it was windy. So not sure if it's weight, aerodynamics or both.Does anyone notice the steering can sometimes be hard to control, like it's pushing you side to side? I am not sure if it's wind (and the car is light) or tramlining, but it's mainly an issue at higher speeds (60+). Anyone else experience this?
Much more sensitive then my Camry, so in SoCal freeway/highway gotta stay more focus on the road. in my camry I'm chilling...Does anyone notice the steering can sometimes be hard to control, like it's pushing you side to side?

I'm looking forward to swapping my tires out when they worn out.Thanks for the feedback. So it's a common thing and I'm not crazy.
One thing I tried is taking a little bit of air out of the tires, as I live in AZ and the summer heat probably makes the psi go a little too high. I put them down to the 30-32 psi range and it seems to have better handling so far.
What's a good model? I was looking into but they're expensive as FI think hydrogen would be best for those extreme temperatures. The only downside is when you need to top up, you can't go with regular air, it has to be hydrogen.
I have a 12v plug in air compressor I keep in my car for top up's. $10 that goes a long way! Beating having to wait for a gas station with an air compressor.
