    Try a three point turn (or k turn)
    With tires as wide asyou have, its hard to turn with out tearing something. Practice, practice!

    You'll get a better touch with the walker every day.
    Mine is a machine that will never owe me anything.

    I have 2 737's and I ordered them with the wide tires and have noticed the same thing you do. You HAVE to do a k or 3 pt turn. The tires have no roundness to them.

    i have a 737 and noticed that you have to make slower turns and be less agressive with the controls.
