"Hi stu: Yes, going a little slow always help and is the less expensive way to attack the problem. But now you present me a good point about suspension on Smart. Modify it may help on getting a more stable on speed driving experience. Good to know,…"

"Thanks to all for the info. I like the idea of have all the same tire size on four corner... Emmanuel, even having different Rial wheel size in front and rear, you have same tire size what help you with the cross-wind problem, good. But what…"

"Try going with a "square 4" tire/wheel configuration. Most popular is using 175-55R-15's all around. Not only can you rotate tires for better tire economy, but you will also notice a more stable driving car, especially in Winter. If…"

"Robert, after reading your comment I guess we have no other way that live with this or increase the down force, so modifying the suspension and adding a body kit may help. Fortunately I never loose the traffic lane. But the feedback from the Smart…"

Robert Stout commented on Milton A Riutort's blog post Cross-Wind
"At 65 mph in a strong crosswind, the Smart tends to lean over...A driver misinterprets the lean as loosing track and over corrects...I'm not saying a strong crosswind can't force a Smart to lose direction, but the lean may exaggerate your…"

"The best way to have the car more stable is to have wider tires on the front. I have 195's on aftermarket rims on all wheels and the car is much more stable in cross-wind. It makes a HUGE difference, added bonus is that the car is more…"

Hi people, I am been driving my Smart Pure (original no mod) for about 5 weeks but yesterday was the firs time that I feel scare driving it on highway crosswind. I not sure how strong the crosswind was, but I drove this highway before at the same normal (65 MPH) and do not felt this way. The Smart start feeling like have no dead center steering wheel position.
