Hi - first post here.

2019 EX, bought on 11/10. At purchase, it had custom wheels and tires. I had them replace them with stock 17” EX wheels and Michelin Energysaver A/S 225/50R17 tires.

1600 miles now. Car has a wobble or jiggle at 40-60mph even on good roads. Neutral tire center/mechanic re-balanced but said they see all four tires with a hop and out of round.

I take it back to dealer Wednesday to replace. Don’t know what to expect from them. Anyone heard of this before?

thanks!

If the wobble was noticed as soon as the wheel/tire change occurred.... mechanic sees all four tires with hop/out of round... could possibly be tires and/or wheels are defective. The fact that your mechanic is noticing this should work in your favor and they can't say it's something you are imagining. Good luck on getting this resolved and let us know what was found as the problem.

Update: Back from the dealer. LF measured 40 pounds of road force on their balancer. They re fit the tire to the wheel and go it to 12, and then moved it to the rear axel. Much better in terms of ride.

Glad to hear you got this resolved and thanks for the feedback as to what was found. Question though... when it comes time for tire rotation will this problem return just not as bad (that tire/wheel returns to the front)?

Great question! It shouldn’t since the road force is so much lower now (or should be much reduced), but I supposed I’ll cross that bridge when the time comes! I’m reading under 20 is a good road force measurement, and they corrected this one to 12.

Ok... with it under the good road force measurement hopefully it will be of no concern. (y)
