I drive on very well maintained roads, and don't put too many miles on my Audi. These wheels got "egg-shaped" after less than a full year of driving, according to my mechanic, and after 2 tries to re-balance them, I had to junk them, along with the expensive Continentals that had plenty of life left in them (because they were warped by the wheels as well). As I said, where I drive, the roads are in good condition (nothing like the NYC metro area, for example; there are very few potholes, etc here), and now I'm left with the age old lesson: you get what you pay for. Actually, I got less than what I paid for, because the tires are junk too now. Sports Edition, this is what happens when you use marshmallow instead of metal in your wheels.
