225/0 17 Tyre Review Highlights
while driving a Ford Mondeo TDCI
Driving on a combination of roads
for 1069 average
Quite disappointed. Replaced worn Goodyear tyres. Chose these based on price and grip / noise ratings more than anything. More comfortable and quiter ride than Goodyear's to start with ........... Until i got onto a motorway ! Immediately felt a wobble / vibration through steering wheel and assumed one of the tyres wasn't balance properly. Could also hear the oscillation as well. Left it a week to see if. It settled but it felt worse once on a long motorway run. On returning i jacked the car up and spun the front wheels in gear. Tyre carcase could be seen moving up and down so appeared not to be round. Tread also appealed to "wander" while spinning. The fitting company decided to re-ballance all 4 wheels. It didn't make any difference. They then took each tyre off of the rims and refitted them and rebalanced them all and then, put the front wheels on the back. Still it vibrates, now through the floorpan more than the steering wheel, which confirms my suspicions that the front tyres (now on the back) were not perfectly round. Just had confirmation that the fitting company, with Avon's agreement, will now replace all 4 tyres under warranty (about 1000+ miles done now). I am very pleased with this decision and hope this resolves the issue.
