As I cant find Michelin tyres any more, on recommendation went to Bridgestone, but I've had balance problems ever since. Anything over 67mph and I feel it through the steering.

I got the tyres checked out for roundness, then replaced the bottom ball joints, track rod ends. sway bar rubbers, and the rack has been refurbished recently. Still going off at 67mph!!

Now the centre bearing and the big rubber support and seal (a replacement couldn't be found last time). Prop. rebalanced.

Well it is better but not as I remembered it. lovely and stable at speed.

Next is to back to front swop and rebalance.

It couldn't be the Bridgestone's could it?? I have swopped the spare Michelin to both fronts with no joy. Onward and upward.
