Hi, I have recently replaced a set of new tires (Michelin X-Radial DT) on my Ford Focus 2003. Immediately, I could feel a slight sound like a rub that causes a dull squeak as if I am carrying a load in the car when I am turning and at different times when the road surface is undulating. At other times the car runs very smoothly. My sense is that these set of tires are a tad larger than the BFGoodrich I used to have for the car.
I am okay with it if this is not going to hurt the car in the long run. But if it is then please advice me what I should do.
Another inconvenience I am having is a squeaking sound that comes from the right rear wheel when I brake (sometimes). I was told that it’s the brake dusts since the brakes are o.k. How can I get rid of that squeak when braking?
Eagerly awaiting your expert comments and advice…
Thanking you in advance and a very happy 2012 to all.
