    In what way have they deformed? Internal failure of the banding can cause it.

    I once had a tyre deform, when looking across the top, it looked agg shaped.

    wow and theres me thinking im the only person thats had this. i put 18" alloys on my vec. front 2 tyres were ****ged after 3 months due to tracking being off. got 2 new ones and swapped the front wheels to the back. got the tracking done but there was terrible vibration through the steering wheel. went back. they checked tracking, fine. took the front wheels off and re-balanced them, while the wheels were spinning on the machine i noticed that the tyre seemed deformed. thought it might of been the alloy but he confirmed it wasnt and it was the **** tyres that came with the alloys. FULLRUNS are crap tyres. heho there now on the back again waiting to be changed. its strange how it happens.

    Deformations can also be caused by debris and nails
    If there is a nail in the sidewall then it can result in a deformation on the opposite side of the wheel, so check this too
