ok since i don't want to ruin my SHO i put them on my 03 SEL and run for a while had them remounted and balanced the best they can, they are out of round, the SEL being cheap and i don't care as much for it i had no problem chaining the ass end to my truck and roasting on them a bit got nice and heated, the tredd is wore thinner but they are back in round, somewhat, they don't hop but the tredd depth is uneven on the tires,

problem fixed/ NO
better ride without ruining my suspension/ YES

and awful lot of trouble to go through just to get the hop out of the tires!

You started the thread asking for advice/opinions, they were given, and you still want to try and fix the out around tires

Still way too much dude, thats $275 per tire...and they're only 18". Probably wasnt the best idea to roast the tires back to round...you probably roasted your tranny in the process.

Most Ford dealerships sell tires for $10 over cost, i'd price out a set there, may be surprised....

Some tire shops used to have tire truing machines, actually cut rubber off the high spots to make them round. If they aren't too bad, something like that might be worth looking into. I always had my bias plies checked and trued, made the vehicle run much smoother.
In today's throw away society, maybe they don't do that anymore.

I think that practice ended around 20 years ago, not likely to find anyone using those machines any more.
