Did you have this problem before the tires were replaced?
IF not, I would say its incorrectly balanced front tires... I only let them put 2-3 weights on a rim before I tell em give me a new tire. Depends on how I feel, usually its a max of 2 before I say HELL NO. And its mainly because I have had those weights fly off and its now time tires should be top grade with all the technology.
Thanks very much indeed for all your advice.....results....
I took the Jimny back to the tyre garage.....asked for the front wheels to be re-balanced.
A different young guy took of the previous lead weights....As I watched him balance them again...he replaced the new weights at a close, but different position on the wheels!
The first guy, on Saturday morning past, took only what seemed as a few minutes...this new guy spent a good 15+ minutes doing them, and now the problem has dissapeared!
Goes to show......rush the job, and it will need done again!!!!
Yep, if you aren't watching them they think they can get away with chessy jobs, especially if you don't speak to em. Usually you should ask them questions like how long you been doing this, do you enjoy it? And act like you know a little about it -- works great on front end alignments because I have seen em completly screw it up and called it a "job well done."
