    Hi,

    Check air pressure in all tires it should be 30 psi, Moreover, as far as my knowledge imported tires are not covered under any warranty

    This isnt the issue with tyres!! check balancing and alignment of your car!! Also if you have Alloys installed, please check its spin!! In local terms they call it "Rims tairhay hain!". If they are, you need to get them repaired or buy new one! Check your air pressure from electronic guage. You have to check the air pressure on daily basis for 2-3 days, whenever u change the rubber!!

    To my knowledge, imported tyres have NO warranty!! Nexen and the good year are the only brands which give warranty. As most of the imported tyres are not imported legally, they are of smuggled lots.

    Dunlop has the reputation worldwide and are considered equally good to Yokohama!! Im using both on my ride(s) and satisfied with them!!
    Its the devotion to work, not the resources which makes a nation to stabilize.The need of the hour is to assure people a decent standard of living, education, employment and social and economic security so that they feel stable and contented !!!

    Personly the best dunlop experience to was Dunlop sp sport 490s.

    Other then that to me Dunlop is just another brand. Pricy because its imported, Generals have better punture protection then Dunlops.

    and Cultuses OEM size is 155-80r13 So ure also using a bigger tire,


    But as their was no isue using previus tires consult your tire dealer if ur not satisfied tell him to claim the warranty/gurantee and replace with yokos.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    @chinyoti
    brother i totally agree with you but i had used the same size tyre for four years and no problem at all.as i told u before also that i bought that car brand new back in 2006 and changed the tyres and rims the very next day.

    @khizar
    bahi agar rim tarre hote to us ko falken tyres per bhi vibrate karna chahye tha.plus im too cary abt my cars and i used to take optimum care of it.so alignment is not out,balancing has been done twice.once from saif traders(from whom i bought these tyres) and secondly from another tyre wala.so i dont thnk so the problem lies in alignment or balancing.

    @irfan
    thanks

    @mzahid
    air pressure is ok.

    Does it happen on high speeds?

    Are u sure all 4 tires vibrate, or happens from a particular side/tire/?

    Does it happen only on braking at high speeds?

    i have the same tyre size in my KIA claasic, the first day i changed them, i had wobbling at around 90KM/h although they were balanced, but still and i knew that the problem is due to the balancing. i live in taxila and know a balancing guy here who has brand new balancing and alignment machines. took the car to him the next day, as i suspected , all tyres needed balancing again.. after that, my car is fine , checked it on high speeds, no issues, apart from that, tyres are very good, soft and good grip. so what i would suggest is check the balancing again from a different shop, most of the time the balancing machines are out of calibration , so acording to the machine your tyres would be balanced but in reality they would'nt be.. hope you understand what am trying to say..

    the tires maybe disbalanced not the rims, check the production date if its more then 3 years then you have a real problem, same thing happened to me a few years back.

    Haroon, i think no prob with the rims. The prob is with tyres. You have bought tyres from a wrong place which has bad reputation. (2 No. maal)
    So check ur car with another set of tyers and u will find the answer.

    sp70i is a low-end dunlop tyre with low speed rating as compared to sp 490 and the LM series...u shudve definitely gone for A drives, which are i guess one of the best-buy tyres out there in the market

    yaar the production date is at the end of 2009.the yokos were having production date of mid 2009 so this was the basic reason of droping those tyres.

    thanks for the reply.before these tyres my car was perfectly fine.now i have driven my car more then 500km on these tyres and they have gone good now.now they only whobble on 80km/h and above 110km/hr.the grip is good,the car doesnt hit in the bumps,they produce very less sound.
