Re: wheel balancing needed after tire rotation
They have been rotated every 5000 miles, so I don't think that is the issue. Thanks for your ideas!
I don't for sure know what rotation pattern the dealer has used, so am going to have to discuss with them. I'm guessing if it is an alignment problem, from the other posts I have read, that it may be the rear that's the problem, especially since the noise seemed to be so prominent after the rotation at 15k. I see no issue with the car going straight down the road with no hands on the wheel or other handling problems.
