Dear forum,
I recently purchased Metzeler rear tire for my BMW R1200RT. (Metzeler Roadtec Z8)
After putting it on - I started to feel nasty vibrations in the bike's rod.
At first I thought they failed to balance the tire properly and after checking - this was not the problem. I did not try yet to replace the tire...
Anyone faced this problem? Or may have advice or solution?

Thanks in advance.

Possible it is out of round? Easy to check just place an object next to the tire and rotate the wheel by hand. If it is out of round you will see it. Also look around the bead to see if it is seated well all around.
