    Default Buckled xp2 wheels

    Hi guys.

    Another problem solved I think!.

    I've had wheel wobble since I brought my XP2 about 6/7 months back, I've had the car looked at by various tyre places. Front wheels balance 4 times and rears twice. Also had them all swapped around and new tyres which where needed anyway. But still the problem persisted. Today I had all 4 wheels and tyres checked again and guess what kwik fit recon both my rear wheels are buckled (which at some point where on the front).

    I must admit as the wheels have been moved around the car the steering shack/wobble has changed and the hole car now wobbles instead.

    Has anyone else had a similar problem that's turned out to be buckled wheels.

    Think I might be in the market for a couple of straight XP2 wheels.

    vectra's, it's a love hate thing. LOL.

    Unless it's a REALLY bad buckle - like visible with the naked eye - you should be able to get them straightened up.. Loads of refurb places around...some even stock already refurbed wheels and will replace a "like for like"..granted it's been a while since I've seen that advertised - but I'm sure one or two must've survived the credit crunch..

    Love those wheels btw.. would look extra nice in a dark gray IMO...
