    to top of my recent woes i have yet another problem when i fitted my new tyres to the new gallardo wheels i bought a couple of weeks ago i got a lot of vibration when doing more than 60 so i had them rebalanced yesterday as i went up to glasgow today all the way there vibration above 60 ? so before coming home i had em rebalanced again for the third tima at national tyres started driving down the m8 and low and behold vibration ? its doin my head in never had this problem with the factory alloys ? the steering wheel rocks slightly from 40to50 then vibration from 60 onwards sometimes it eases of but i aint got a clue has anyone else had this when they fitted new wheels ? cheers jase

    Two very obvious questions, I feel a bit condescending for asking them tbh.

    1. Wheels nuts correct and tightened?
    2. Any spacers being used?

    anyone know actually good online location for buying spacers for 18inch RS6s fitted onto a B6 A4. I get a little vibration above 55-60 also?

    checked the drivers side front wheel and the tyre looked like it had a raised bit when i span it round if you know what i mean,so i swaped front wheel for back wheel and it seems ok nowthink its a dodgy tyre is it ok to leave it on the back or change it ?
