156 tramlining on new tyres
Hi everyone, I seem to be getting quite a bit of tramlining on my 156 since I had new tyres fitted about 1500 miles ago. I am currently running on Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 at the front and NCT-5 at the rearand previously I was running on NCT-5's front and rear. The front wishbones were changed 10,000 miles ago, as were the top wishbones and track rod ends. Tracking was set as well at a garage to 0º toe out. I have checked tyre pressures and they were ok, 33psi all round as per what the manual suggests, although I have tried 34 at the front with no difference.
Are the GSD3's especially prone to follow road imperfections? As it can require a lot of concentration to keep straight on uneven roads.
Tyres are 205/55 R16 BTW
You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall.
