hi all :)

I got my first pair of S03s in front... Doing around 70-80mph, I can feel really bad vibration at the steering wheel (steering wheel vibrating from right to left), but only on asphalt covered freeway sections...

any comments or suggestions on what could cause this?? Never noticed this with my Contis... btw, running S03's at 40psi.

thanks!

Hunter Machine

Mates the heavy side of the tire...and the heavy side of the wheel together...

Its ok to just have tire balanced the old fashioned way...but dynamic/road balance......is the way to go....especially with the stiffer sidewalls that performance tires have....

Simply putting weights on the wheel and balancing the old fashioned way..isn't good enough anymore....need to match heavy side of tire, with heavy side of wheel...etc....<br><font color=maroon><font size=1><font>

road crown, alignment, front camber......doubtful tire dyn balance would help much...but it might..dunno...<br><font color=maroon><font size=1><font>
