Out of round tires???

Hi
My 67 mustang 390 was sitting on the tires for about a year and 1/2 and when
I finally took it out there seems to be a lot of bumping about the tires.
Will this condition eventually disappear or is new tires the remedy.It has
oversize Dunlop radials on it now.Thanks for any response

They've probably got permanent flat spots after such a long time in one
place.

Re: Out of round tires???

Were they left inflated or flat? I would try to drive the flat spot out by
going on a few mile drive and warming the tires, depending on how bad the
flat spots are, and if you feel safe doing it.

My 91 Isuzu sat from Feb 04 to about a month ago. Had flat spots too. After
a few days, and some air, they quit feeling like they were square.
