Well, I was forced to get new tires today. I picked up a nail in the left front, which made it leak slowly and "click" on each revolution as the nail head hit the pavement. Went to Discount Tire for a repair, and they said they would not fix the tire because it had a few other repairs in it and was looking pretty old anyway (they were Uniroyal Tiger Paws with about 70,000 miles on them
). So I called Holly and we decided to put new tires on it. I wanted some 235/60/16s on it, but they were about $100 more expensive altogether, so I went with 225/60/16. I got the Kumho Touring Plus 732
, which for the money is supposed to be an incredible deal.
After install the car has front end vibration on the highway, which it didn't have with the old tires. I am assuming the new tires weren't balanced very well, but I want to ask you all if there is anything else I should have the Discount Tire guys check. It'* disappointing, because I was expecting the car to ride smooth as glass. I'll be taking it back in sometime tomorrow if I can, so reply ASAP if possible.
BTW, if it matters, I had them put all the weights on the inside of the wheel, and I believe they used a "sticky" weight on some of the wheels. Not sure if those are reliable or not, especially if I'll be drag racing with them in the future.
