These tire act as if they are out of balance, a speeds of 65-70mph they will shake to vehicle so bad, it dislogdes my cell phone battery. I have had these tire back to Firestone to be rebalanced several times. They say the tire are balanced correctly. This problem occurs after the vehicle has been drivin for a half hour or so. When they are cold their fine. Firestone has blamed my driveshaft and cv joints. I have moved the tire around the vehicle and the vibration follows the tires. Could these tire be going out of round after they warm up? I was just living with this problem, but now I see that these tire are under investigation by the NHTSA.
