    Have the shop move the new tires to the rear of the car a test drive after that. This should narrow down what is going on with your new tires. Michelin and all tire makers are constantly changing and renewing their tire designs. Some tires that were available as little as 6 months ago may no longer be in the inventory for the different tire makers, this could be why you cannot find them online at the Michelin web site. Have the shop check to make sure if one of the tires has a bad belt or if one of the wheels is slightly out of round.

    Good luck!
