Hi ther I have recently brought a 2007 facelift touuareg 3.0tdi (165kw model) its great.It had the original 235X65X17 ( 7.5j X 17 rims ) with an offset of 55.
I decided to put on some 18 inch 2014-2016 vw touareg alloys (karakum) which are 18X55X255 (8j X 18 rims) with an offset of 57.

The 18X55X255 came with bald tyres and the steerinf felt alot lighter than when I had the 17" rims on. I put it down to the bald tyres so I have put new tyes on but steering still feels alot lighter.

Wondering if as offset is different then this is what is causing it or does it need a wheel alignment.

I looked on and the 18" with tyres are the same circumference and overall diameter.

Any suggestions and advice would be much appreciated.
