Re: 90QC Widest tires? Susp tweaks? Steering?
I personally don't have any experience with wheel/tire combos on this
model, but I think I may have a suggestion re. suspension.
If I'm not mistaken, that car did not come from the factory with a
rear sway bar. (if it did, I'm sorry for the bandwidth)
So, assuming that the car does not have a rear bar, the most sensible
way to resolve handling probs. would be to add one. The most
factory-like way would be to use a set of Front control arms (which
have the provisions for the sway bar) in the rear and add the front
sway bar mounts to the rear subframe, then install a front sway bar in
the rear of the car as well. In my opinion, this will tighten up the
handling more than anything else.
I'm sure other list members will also have suggestions for you.

I've been toying with the idea of upgrading my Coupe's wheels to +2 (17")
configuration. I think a 215/45R17 will fit. Can I go any wider on what I
suppose will be an 8" wide rim?
Also, who are the sources for the suspension tweaks I keep hearing about?
The coupe rolls/leans a good deal unless cornered pefectly, but FWIW rarely
bids adieu to the road. I think I'd like to flatten it a bit.
Oh, one more thing. I get what I think is a pronounced oversteer when the
steering is cranked over a good bit when accelerating from low speed (ex. a
sharp left turn with oncoming traffic.) is this normal/ correctable?
