I got stock pirelli P-zero's 18 inch all around, recently I've noticed vibrations during hwy driving. Looking at the thread it's still good, my question is this: Do I need re-balance? or those P-Zeros tend to warp or bubbled after 15k miles and need to be changed?

Re: steering wheel shake durign high speed (minorthr)

You would know if it was a bubble in the sidewall. You can plainly see those things. You situation is quite simple. Take it to a GOOD local tire shop. Tell them the situation, go for test drive. VIOLA, they should know right away what it is.

But like some of the other members noted, you'd be able to see a bubble. Be sure to check the rims because the 18" rims are notorious for damage because of the low sidewall of the tires.

chances are, you have a rim that is slightly bent, or the tires just need to be re-balanced.<br>

Yes, much more likely that a wheel weight fell off...they are the stick on kind after all and if they are not properly installed, they CAN fall off. Not that common. <p>
