Can't keep them balanced

by Richard Riesen
(Binghamton, NY USA)

I purchased the best copper tire for my car that was available. I have had them a year and have had to have them balanced and re-balanced 5 times so far. I purchased them thru Mavis and they tried to tell me I had a bent wheel, which is not a fact. I went to my car dealer to have the wheels checked and nothing wrong with the wheels. The dealer rebalanced the tires again. Less than 4,000 miles the tires need re-balancing again for the 5th time. I was told by a good mechanic that there is problems with the top of the line copper tires keeping them in balance.
I guess the only real option is to get new tires from someone else.

Balanced 4 times already and still vibrate NEW
by: Jesse Kendall

I purchased them on March 1st, balanced them 5 times already. 3 times on a Hunter Roadforce balancing machine, which is supposed to be the ultimate wheel balancing machine. The machine says the wheels are out of spec. Called the installer and they best they could do is to offer me a set of Michelins at cost ($300)... Beyond frustrated with these tires, but not enough to spend another $300 to replace them.

I feel your frustration!
