Help-Toyo R888

Hi
not sure if it's about the tire or something wrong with fitment.
i had potenza S0001 replaced.
got my new apex EC-7
front: 18x9 ET42
rear: 18x9.5 ET43
i equipped all tires with 245/40/18 *Toyo R888*.

the car is vibrating while moving from 20-35mph.
moving from 0-20mph && from 40mph++ is fine and there is no vibration.

Have the installer re-check the balance on the wheels.
If that doesn't do it, check all of your tire pressures and inspect the tires for flat spots or damage.
If that doesn't do it, you may have an issue with a bad tire. Occasionally, companies do put out a bad tire. If it's bad, it'll be replaced under manufacturer warranty.

it seems to be the way the tire is made, it handles so well that you won't lose control..ever .

Check two things. Check the balance as the other poster said and also check to make sure the wheels are round and balanced without the tire on. But before ripping the tires off, check balancing with tires on first.
