-incorrect torque on lug nuts
-uneven wear pattern on tire (from misalignment, improper balance, or rotor warp)
-debris in the wheel
-dirt/rust between wheel and hub
Also, it may help to request "road force" balancing when you do rotation, as the plain spin balance may not be enough (assuming a competent tech is doing the balancing).

Then you get a new set of the "so called" identical tires and this problem starts. I'd say the tires are BAD, or they somehow damaged your rims during the mounting process to where this condition started. Has anybody driven this car other than yourself to where some damage could have occurred without your knowledge? Maybe the garage/mechanic taking it for a test drive and really beating on it? It seems like the tires themselves could be the problem. What mileage did you end up getting out of the original set? Hmmmmmmmm .........................
dragon64 wrote:I see there was a recommendation of getting them balanced on a Hunter "Road Force" balancer. There seems to be an internet myth that these machines are better because the apply the rotational force to the tread. I have seen just as many balancing errors with these machines as any other. This machines are no better or worse than any other modern balancing machine.
