    Unhappy More wheel wobble woes! Pleeeease help!!!

    Hi All,
    About 3 months ago I had 4 new Avon ZV5's fitted, had 4 wheel Hunter tracking too, a few days later went and had front balance re-done and have had balance re-done a few times since, still getting front wheel wobble. The Avons are extra load, does this make any difference?
    Took the car to local VX today for check on bushes, joints, leaks, springs etc. etc. tyres are good, wheels (standard fit VX alloys) are good, no damage etc. yet while the car was lifted up and while standing under it, if the steering was turned a 'squelching' could be heard from higher up in the rack - not near the pump! Could this be connected to the wheel wobble? It's going in for further investigation, but I was looking for any advice prior to this.
    My front discs have quite a lip around the edge, could this contribute?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    BTW absolutely great site guys!!!

    Also BTW it'a a .... Vec C 05 2.0DTI design

    Have you tried swapping the tyres front to back? It could be the tyres out of round or something similar. just a thought that it seems a coincidence - sp? - that it all started when you fitted new rubber
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Does sound like the tyres to be honest - I swopped my around when I replaced two tyres and had real problems despite two or three goes at balancing and alignment, when I replaced the other two tyres (with just balancing on the two wheels and no further alignment) the problem instantly disappeared.

    Thanks guys, will try if I get time before it goes in. What do you think about the extra load tyres, I'm sure my previous weren't?

    Definitely doesn't need XL tyres - not sure how they affect ride quality though.
