thank YOU FOR THAT INFO, EVEN THOUGH YOU HAD NEW TIRES AND BALANCED THERE CAN STILL BE AN ISSUE SUCH AS BENT RIM, NOT TORQUED PROPERLY, BAD TIRE ETC. what i WOULD DO FIRST TO ELIMINATE ANY TIRE OR WHEEL ISSUES IS TO ROTATE THEM FRONT TO BACK. iF THE PROBLEM IS LESS THEN THAT IS WHAT IT IS. iF NOT THEN CHECK THE BRAKES FOR DRAGGING OR HOLDING ON, WARPED ROTORS. also HAVE THE FRONT SUSPENSION CHECKED FOR WORN AND LOOSE PARTS.
