Hello again - This is MIKE who replied to you at first.
To explain - when I responded to you , you didn't respond to me for 2 day + 15 hrs.. I was then off for time off - so that fell badly Im afraid - so Im sorry that was all just unfortunate... Then this morning you relisted your question, which I can understand - but IM afraid that caused further delay - I know you were not to know that would happen - but Its just the way the system works.
I hope you can see whats happened - none was intentional Im sure you can see - but my apologies this has happened.
Back to the car then - You mentioned it only started to happen after new tyres were fitted-
Can I just ask - have you tried ( have the tyre place tried ) - replacing the tyres with a "different" set / different make at all?
Too - since the tyre fitting - has the car kit a kerb - gone down a bad ridge / pot hole - anything like that?
What have the tyre place suggested - ? and have they tried to re balance the tyres at all?
Too - what sort of balance weights have the used - ie - hammer on type.. that you can see fitted to the rims of the wheels.. or - stick on flat type.. that you can see looking through the wheels - on the inner side?
If you can let me know on the above - then we can progress..
Once again -my apologies for the delay -
Kind Rgds, MIKE.....................
