Default "Play" in the steering wheel

What causes it, and how can it be fixed?

Usually a loose nut behind the wheel

There's alot between the wheel and the tires, power steering pump, belt etc.

Also tire size, pressure...

I would think this should be in Brakes & Suspension but there are several parts that can contribute to 'play'.

Front endlinks, do you have solid ones? Stiffening these up can really liven up turn in, especially if the stock pieces are worn at all.

Get urethane steering rack inserts, these supposedly really firm up feel, haven't done these on my car but it makes sense.

Anti-Lift kit will stiffen things up as well, especially if you get a kit with spherical bearings like Perrin.

Tires, get something with a stiff sidewall like Azenis.
