Garage just told me this was the reason car was rattling badly at 65mph !!!

How'd they get out of shape? They're both fairly new tyres (2 months)....

Manufacturing fault? Should I go back to the tyre dealer with this?

what brand are they?i have found in the past that budget tyres can be a little out of shape
also i gather they have ruled out the suspension and steering components

No tyre is 100% round,but some as nthesx says,budget tyres are worse.:eek:

The trouble is,I have seen tyres that have been out of shape quite badly from new,and they haven't caused any balancing or vibration problems.

It sounds more like the wheels haven't been balanced correctly after the tyres were fitted...

Also,you say that the car is vibrating at 65mph,is it the whole car or just the steering wheel?.If it's the whole car,then the rears are out of balance,if it's just the steering wheel,then it's the fronts.

I've already replied on this topic on the "Scenic - Whole car shudders" thread.
