mazda 6 is my first car and ive never had any problems with it till now and a few days ago i put my summer tires back on which are low pro's and i noticed that the steering is tighter/feels different
i checked all the air pressures and i cant really tell whats wrong
sometimes when taking turns it will feel harder to turn into other ones.
i bought the car a month before i had to put winters on and didn't notice this feeling until i got the winters off.
if anyone would know why my steering feel different from just switching tires please reply

your winter tires are a softer compound which makes turning "feel" much smoother almost butter like and once you switch to a harder compound summer tire the steering should commonly "feel" harder because of the harder compound. This happened to me as well as since I went from bridgestone blizzaks to conti pro contact and i noticed the difference right away. nothing to do with tire pressure.
