1. "Attempt to Save Customization Failed" - usually occurs when car has a rated speed above 250mph (400km)
Primary Fix - Retune gear ratio slider all the way to left (short) so that car has speed lower than 250mph. You should be able to customize/tune your car now. Retune gear ratio to your preference afterwards. Always make sure your car has a rated speed below 250mph before customizing.
Other Potential Fixes:  
Fix 2 (for all scenario) - Switch cars/leave & re-enter garage (might not always work)
Fix 3 (for Performance Customization) - Reset Peformance Customization and customize again.
Fix 4 (for Visual Customizatoin) - Reset Visual Customization (including wheels) and customize again.
Fix 5 (for Livery Customization) - Save livery into a new slot 

2. Incorrect Speed Rating - The rated top speed and actual top speed may not match, specially when final drive & gear ratio is tuned to be low/long. Only a minor ignorable issue.

3. Liveries applied to the wrong car - due to increased number of livery slots, some liveries might get applied to the wrong car.
Fix - Reapply livery/Reapply & save livery to a new slot.

Haven't tested it with wheels. But I don't see any reason why it wouldn't

Does this still work with the wheel support?

About mods, I do use certain mods. But according to the info/notes available for each mod that I use, I can assure you that I refrain from mixing two mods that affect the same game value/feature/function.
Besides, thanks for your work and for prompt response. Remastered mod undoubtedly makes the game so much more better.

I do use a generic controller. But I do not face the turning issue with vanilla game with the same controller. But then again acceleration is not as powerful in vanilla game anyway. I mean the way tires straighten out, it looks like to be happening due to really strong forward thrust. About the cops, I get your point. The timing happened such that by the time I got on to try your mods, I had already achieved fully tuned top tier cars so that's why I kind of missed the chance to see the changes.

magician57v (February 26, 2023 @ 18:27)
Could be a controller issue. Are you using anything other than an XBOX One controller? Generally, any other controller other than XBONE doesn't work well for NFS2015 (including vanilla).
As for cops, you will notice their aggression more with slower cars. Absolute top tier cars can still outrun them quite easily. I'll see if I can make more improvements/variations to the cop module.
Also make sure you do not have any conflicting mods from other modders.
