    Default Got rid of the Firestone Destination AT's on my Mahindra

    From initially being very happy with the Firestone Destination AT tyres I fitted to my vehicle I have now replaced them after only 32 000KM, here is why:

    For the last 7000KM odd there have been continuous issues with balancing. In total the set of tyres were balanced 8 times from around the 25 000KM usage mark. It doesn't matter what was done, including rotating and swapping tyres too, there was always a speed range within which the vehicle would start vibrating.

    I had the vehicle at three different shops as well to minimize the chance of equipment/ operator error on the balancing machines but to no avail. At the end of the day it seems the tyres went out of round which is a great pity because as far as performance goes the tyres never disappointed on any surface and looked like they would give good mileage.

    How does the tyre go out of round by itself?
