I have had them balanced twice and am going back tomarrow for the third time. The vibration was not there before the tires were put on and the manager even told me that I would be back within 200 miles of the install. I really like the way these tires grip in the rain, they even did great in about 4-6 inches of snow, but the vibration is litterally making my teeth hurt. If they can not get it right then I may have to go with another tire which would suck.... Anyone else had a hard time getting these tires balanced?
Was it just one wheel that was very difficult to balance? I've never heard of a brand/style of tire that was hard to get balanced. I would be immediately suspect of Goodyear's product and request replacements until they get a product that can be balanced more easily.
