Weird problem with.......

ok so i have a 98 accord, and i hope someone can help me out. when im driving on the highway over 100 i'll hold the steering straight and all of a sudden the tires would turn? like the car would feel like its sliding in the front from side to side. checked the ball joints and stuff they were good. roated the tires jsut to see and nothing happend. do you think maybe its the steering rack?

do you have big rims and tire on it? You sure it's not just the road? Usually with bigger rims and tire and odd roads, the car will follow the flow of the road and feel like it's wants to slide side to side.

Doesn't make sense.

So does it feel like it's sliding, or does it actually slide? Do you notice any movement in the steering wheel as it's sliding?
