My steering wheel wobbled back and forthe about an inch or two at low

Michael,

What make of tire??

I can’t remember. They were there when I bought the car. I still have the
original rears and they are Michelin. I put Pirelli P5000s on the front.
Before we start bad mouthing tire brands, I must also add that I had new
tie rod ends and newer type ball joints installed along with a poly rack
mount bushing. It may have been a case of really bad alignment that
destroyed the fronts and NOT a specific brand. The point was to check the
tires when you have these symptoms in the steering. Getting a blown tire
at speed can really give one a LOT to tell the list.

I just tossed 2 old Dunlops that separated and went lumpy on me. I
replaced them with P4000s (glutton for punishment?). In the 80’s, I had
MANY Michelins go bad, but these were generally cars that had been
sitting for years before I got to them. JW

The P5 Cinturatos were known for tread separation, so I don’t think we could
do more damage to their reputation than the tires did. We’re safe, though,
because the P5s are no longer in production, so it’s kind of like speaking
ill of the dead.

I have 4 of the Z-rated P4000s on the car now and have not had a problem, so
I’m hoping Pirelli solved the problem with the new tire.
