2004 Ford Taurus.. Are tire belts shifting?.
Are tire belts shifting?
I recently purchased a 2004 Ford Taurus with very low mileage (70,000 Kilos/43,500 Miles) from a friend.
There are 4 Firestone tires, 215/60R16 size on the Ford.....tires are approx. 6 months old with 90% tread.
I have noticed a lumpy/bumpy ride at certain speeds. The lumpy feel to the ride is noticeable between 80 km/hr or 50 mi/hr to 100 km/hr or 60 mi/hr.....This lumpy ride does not seem to appear at speeds higher such as 100 km/hr or 60 mi/hr... but will appear from time to time at very low speeds (40 km/hr).
There is no vibration or shaking of the steering wheel at any speed so I assume the tire balance is OK.....Could this be the tire belts starting to shift or separate?....Any advice?.... Thanks
