Default 'wobbly' car

Hi bro, since day 1, my family had been complainin that the car tend to be quite wobbly at the middle and back row, they said it felt like sitting on a boat.. but I did went to CnC and get my suspension check, all is ok.. so I had tryin with diffrent tyre pressure, from Front 250pa rear 250pa, then 280pa 280pa, 300pa 300pa, and now 320pa 340pa. currently i felt that 320 340 is quite good as the vehicle go more smoothly when fully loaded with my 6 big sized family member, but its quite difficult to brake, so will be goin back to 300pa 300pa. any bro can advice can anything be done to this 'wobbly' effect? is it just my car, or same goes for everyone here? or simply just bcos my family member still not use to it, despite my 1yr of ownership...

Hmmm.. My family so far hasn't had. Any complains.. Maybe because I tend to really slow down on corners and bumps.. ESPECIALLY corners AND bumps.. Hehe..

Anyways can we really pump that high a pressure? I only pumped 260.. Wanted to pump higher but I saw the info by the side there that recommend is 250 if I'm not wrong.. What's the maximum pressure we can pump for cold pump? Can someone please enlighten. Me?

All C4gp are the same, partly french tune the suspension softer for comfort and i suspect the huge glass roof contribute the effect too!

From my understanding, you can pump 10% above recommended pressure to maximise fuel efficiency and tire usage. So recommendation is 250kpa, you should pump upto 275kpa. Not sure if you can pump to 350 kpa.

Hi skyc88,

You might like to check your wheel balance and/or wheel alignment. One single unbalanced wheel can sometimes cause this

Regards.

Hi Skyc88,
If u r referring to wobbly during normal cruising then u shld get the wheel alignment checked out just for ease of mind.
If it is pertaining to going over humps, potholes, uneven roads then it is normal due to GP having softer suspension built for long distance drive comfort.
