Question Stiffer Steering / Firmer Steering Response

I feel like the steering wheel is too loose while driving. Does anyone know of anything I can do to firm up the steering wheel to get a firmer steering feel (more resistance when turning the wheel)?

Maybe stickier tires, maybe talk to an alignment expert about possibly increasing the toe-in.

Adjusting tire pressures first can help. If that doesn't pan out to the feel you like, I would look into a custom alignment.
