Bent wheels, do I need new tyres?
Ok, the dealer tells me that the vibration that just showed
up on my S6 is due to:
- two bent wheels,
- an out-of-round tyre on a third wheel.
Too many potholes around here.
The wheels are MSW Type 55 with Pirelli Winter 210s on them.
So I have a few of questions for the wisdom of the list:
Assuming I replace the two bent wheels, should I replace the tyres also.
ie. is it possible that the tyres are also damaged?
What would cause a tyre to go "out-of-round" and should that tyre be
I was running the 210s at 38psi, is this enough or should I inflate
them to something higher. I am thinking that a higher pressure may
protect the rims more.
