Does this apply to ALL 2009 alloys?   I have 15" Zetec wheels which apart from the odd scuff appear perfect and it tracks totally true.   



Think it only applies to the 16inch alloys on some of the fiesta models mainly the titanium and the zetec 16inch alloys

Avons are great quality tyres very good in rain conditions too but not as fuel efficent as michelin primacey 2
However if I had a choice id choose Avon over anything.

Avon zv5 £76.96
Uniroyal rainsport 2 £85.90
Michellin pilot sport 3 £97.44

Haha, didnt realise those fell into it aswell.

Ive decided before i go ahead with all these changes going to rotate the tyres and see if im stilling getting a vibration, if i have then either something has really fone wrong on my car or ive got 4 buckled alloys.

Mine went off to be sold with 3, and had replaced the front 2 before that; I'd been running on 4 buckled wheels after replacing 5 months prior to that.

 

Also I wouldn't bother with Continental ContiPremiumContact tyres, I can spin them easily in 3rd gear, so they seem pretty poor to me, and noisy >.< despite good first impressions.
