Toe-in and oversteer?

Can anyone tell me whether too much (or too little) toe-in could cause oversteer on a lifted Zuk with big tires? TIA

Re: Toe-in and oversteer?

Thanks Doug! I recently installed new tires that had white lines painted on them around the tread circumference, so I took a moment to measure the distance between the lines on the leading and trailing sides of my front tires. The two measurements were identical (meaning I have zero toe-in). It has always driven and handled well with smaller tires, but I noticed some oversteer (very slight) when I went to the new 32x11.5's. I think I'll add a touch of toe-in and see how it handles. Thanks again!
