There is a slight vibration and it will only get worse until the car is unusable or I replace the tyres.
He also advised me that this will happen again with any new tyres that I fit and this is a problem that can happen with runflats.
The problem is therefore not fixable?
He told me that it isn't the wheel balancing.
So all I can do is scrap the car for pennies?
It is a 2007 Mini Cooper Diesel.
please tell me you didnt take it to Kwik fit
