So, I was hoping that I will not buy tires until the summer, but blew one OE tire that had almost no thread. Since all four were almost bare, I decided to buy all four for $293 mounted and balanced. I decided to get 225/55R16 to replace the michelin 215/60R16. I bought the Nexen N5000. Nice looking tires, nice and quiet. I actually hear the outside air pressure noise more than the road. But my beef is with the mounting. The tires came with those red and yellow dots. Supposedly the yellow is to mount over the valve or use the red to the mark on the rim. I looked and I think they just mounted as they felt like mounting. So I took it back and told them that its vibrating, the guy first tells me that they dont have a high speed balancer, that their equipment is old. Then that its not about the dots, that gets corrected with the weights. Then they try to rebalance. I drive again and not as bad, but still shimmy and vibrations between 60 to 75mph. Are they talking shite?
