When I installed the new Dunlop Direzza 101 tires I could tell that the fronts were out of balance so I took them back to the shop and sure enough one of them was. They rebalanced the tire but it still didn't feel right. These guys can shave tires and balance them on the car which of course costs extra. After having them do the works, the tires now feel great but it cost me an extra $70 dollars per tire to get them right. So it appears to me that I got a tire that was out of round. I don't know if this was a one in a million thing with the inexpensive Dunlops or if this would be a common problem. So basically this set of tires cost me the initial price plus the $140 to get them right. Would I recommend them? Yes, provided they meet your needs. Will I buy them again next time? Probably not, due to the fact that they squeal when I burn rubber. I like to light em up frequently but I have cut back due to the embarrassing noise they make while doing so. If I was 16 again I probably would have paid extra for that feature! :biggrin: Next time I will be looking for a tire that doesn't squeal or cost an arm and a leg.
