I recently had the dealer mount and balance 2 new front tires - Michelin Pilot PS2's - 235/35/19's.  Please see the attached note on the work order.  This past weekend was the 1st opportunity I had to take it out on the highway and i noticed shaking in the steering wheel from about 55 on up and a more noticeable vibrating which seems to be coming from the middle of the car.  Called dealer and they recommend 500 miles highway use to see if they settle in.  They explained that they have seen some warranty issues on the Michelin's.    Can anyone explain the road fore weight statement?  Ive never heard of that before and never had problems with any tires,michelin or otherwise.  Tks.

Sometimes rotating the tire on the wheel can change or fix balance issues. If you put the heaviest part of the tire on the heaviest part of the wheel (usually by accident) chances you will have an balance issue.

 

Here is an article/brochure that explains more...

tks.interesting article.  Anyhow, drove the car again to verify shaking....  Michelin was nice - talked to them to get some info and they told me to return the tires and get what i had originally asked for - OEM tires.  On order.
