I too am using Viva 2'* on my Park Avenue and have a wobble while driving.. moreso while slowing down. I may have to start checking around for new tires as well. Honestly, I hadn't really even considered the tires, they are in decent enough shape to have never even crossed my mind.

I took one of my rear tires off yesterday, and I noticed one spot on the inside had an are that looked pushed in a bit, now I understand why Walmart had to put so many weights on the inside and outside trying to balance the tires.
The tires were in good shape, so I never expected them to be bad, of course Walmart never told me they had trouble balancing them, I'm never going with a Walmart tire ever again!


Thanks for responding.
