I have owned this accord for 6 years now. It came with Bridgestone Potenza tires, but in December of 2006 I got Direzza DZ-101 215/50/R17 which was the stock recommended size (I think).
I used to keep the psi on these at 30 uniform. I think i've driven these tires about 15-20,000 kms, only within Karachi. And my driving style is slightly aggressive.
Now the ride in my car has become horrible. I feel bumps and the overall ride is very uncomfortable as compared to before. I think its starting to have an affect on other parts as I can hear other parts of the car making noise.
I have gotten alignment checked and balancing checked.
1) Who is the most knowledgeable guy in Karachi to goto for alignment and balancing? In case it wasnt done properly.
2) Are the tires finished?
3) Could it be out of shape rims (I have not checked for this)
4) Could it be something on the car (suspension, shocks etc)
The mileage on the car is 49000km. I bought it when it was 20-21000km (it wasn't driven in Pakistan).
Thanks in advance for your help!
