I find more and more people complaining about their tires balance after a new purchace, myself included. It doesn't seem to matter wheather the tires are National Brand Name or Private Label Tires... Everything was fine before the new tire purchace. Those of us that also have a 2nd set of rims and tires that we swap back to for winter/summer can more easily determine wheather or not it is a tire issue or an allignment problem. Heres a good example: I recently purchaced new wheels and tires from one of the most respected mail order tire distributors. After installing them on my new car, the steering wheel shimmys on the highway. So I moved around the new wheels/tire on the car so that I could find the best fit. While rotating the new wheels/tires, I would also experience a pull from one side or another. Finaly after about 3 rotations, I finally got an exceptable mix/balance. Months later when I finally removed the 4 new wheels/tires from the car so that I could reinstall the factory wheels/tires for winter, every thing was fine! Having my new tires/wheels off of the car, I took them to a reputable local tire store for balancing, and was told that all 4 tires were fine. Does anyone have any suggestions or similar stories to share...Please chime in!
