Spent weeks and ���� trying to balance "048"s even sent one wheel to a "wheel straightener" with no improvement.

Swiched to 888's on Pesky's advice and never anymore trouble.
Well not from the wheel balance anyway...trouble then moves to the bearings and toelinks and so on.. all in the quest for speed .:-)

I had a wheel wobble with my car when I first got it. However since Steve Guglielmi carried out a geo on the car, it's been fine since!

Mine was MOT'd last week and looking at the 888s that were on the car I thought that they were just a bit too close for comfort so I swapped wheels to another set I have which are fitted with A048s.

Guess what - yep - wobble at 70ish mph ! Put the 888s back on - no wobble !

Yes - STOP PRESS ! Car spotted on road !
.... and for once the martin or Steve didn't help me with the most basic of jobs - i.e change the the tyres.

I know its hard to believe. Hell I even softened off the nitrons before heading out. Might get round to fitting some carbon soon ;)

In my experience tyre testing should not be carried out by big girls anyway......
