    bit weird

    got the new wheels not sure if they have oil on them or what but it feels like its spinning but its almost as the clutch is slipping but i have had a new 1 not long ago

    my question is if the clutch is slipping then does you speedo still go up?

    yeah really sounds liek wheel spin.
    most tyres do it when new so also be careful cornering and hard braking.
    just do a few more miles and tehy should sort themselves out.

    thats probably half the problem running budget tyres as they will never offer the same performance as a branded tyre. i run yoko peradas and they great but do find them to be slightly noisey but not ott so i dont mind as the grip and feel is excellent in all conditions and they wear well on my second front pair in only 25000 of hard use
