My clio wants to KILL me



  Clio 1.2 16v extreme
Hi all. I have just brought a 1.2 16v, 05 plate clio. It had lost of advisories witch i rectified

new shocks
coil springs
top mounts
track rod ends
breaks all round
tyres

The fact that it's broken all round doesn't help. But as Dan said, what tyres have you fitted?

Avon i believe?

Im not sure its the tyres as on a straight its ok but bumps no matter how big or small and at any speed. The wheels on it are 17" though?

i know its not ideal getting a car with problems, it came with a full 12 months M.O.T so thought id be ok the advisories were for one corner or another but as I'm commuting i thought best to just replace all 4 corners to be safe. I felt this in the car before i replaced all the corners, so as an educational guess it not what ive already replaced?

cheers for the quick response

Tbh thats what my plans were to swap them to someone who wants them and to put some standard back on. Would this really be the problem do you think something as simple as changing my wheels?

It could be .. it could also be massively over inflated tyres. Wrong shocks. Banana shaped crashed car repair.. who knows.

Sell them on ebay and buy some OEM 15s.
