    Hey Y'all,

    Got new tires about a month ago. Today on the way home from class I was driving down the road at around 70mph. The guy in front of me slowed down to turn so I put on the brakes.

    As Im slowing down I can feel like my back right tire was bouncing as I was slowing down. I did it one more time when I slowed down later. Didn't happen anymore after that.

    Thoughts?

    Keep an eye out. Sometimes problems like that are hard to determine without some consistancy of symptom. I wouldn't worry unless it starts doing it more regularly

    are your tires balanced right? i had this problem going over 70, and with braking, and having the tires balanced helped..

    Just had the tires put on a month ago. Had them balanced and everything. Gonna go in sometime this week and have them re-balanced and aligned.
