update--> so i took the rims and tires to bramalea tire. they gig a hunter g force test and it turns out that the tires were completely out of round.

therefore, i will not get another set of falken ziex 912.

i was wondering what other tires i should get staying away from falken. i was thinking the following:

goodyear eagle gt
toyo proxes 4
sumitomo hrt III


what do you guys think,

thanks
derek

also when they put on the wheel they might have crushed the ring, or wrong sized ring.

edit- didnt see the last post, like i said tires. Go with the toyo's there a really nice tire

road noise? PFFT! If he's driving around pounding JBL subs I doubt he's worried about road noise. Yes, some tires are noisier than others, but unless you've actually owned them, you can't' really make that assessment. I've read some reviews where guys said they're loud, and some that said they were way quieter than they expected.

it's too bad you don't have a staggered setup cause I have a set of Yoko AVS that are 85-90% that I don't need. I have no idea why they stopped making these tires - they were awesome, especially for the price. Does anyone know what the successor to these is? I'd buy another set for sure.

okay major update.

i changed the tires today and put different hubrings on.

however, i have the same fuking problem.

the rims will drive fine, and then out of nowhere a shaking will begin....... the tires are perfectly round and the hubrings are the exact size.


could there be something wrong with my car??????????

Fuk im pissed

Any vibration when braking?

I would put on an old set of rims to see if you encounter the same problem...

no its definitley not a seized caliper because i was at RMP a couple days ago and rocky would have noticed something.

im going to go tomorrow and get my rims taken off and see whether the center bore actually matches 74.1. i have a bad feeling it doesnt and than i will be relieved
