    Sounds like the wheels need balancing properly, were they done correctly the first time ? Could possibly be either a buckled wheel or dodgy tyre too, get them checked out or do it yourself

    Yeah I can only really echo what steve said...

    1) Take your car to a tyre fitting garage ASAP and get them to double check ALL your wheelnuts.

    2) Your tracking may be out, which will also cause your tyres to wear unevenly which is a mighty pain in the ass, and dangerous!

    3) Your wheel weights weren't put on properly and have flung off - (And before anyone says it - IT HAPPENED TO ME!! :P)

    My rear passenger wheel came loose t'other day.. like, dangerously loose.

    I could hear grinding noises and tapping noises. I pulled over as soon as I noticed noises and I had LOST 1 wheelnut, and the other three were FINGERTIGHT. Scary stuff mate! Anyway, take it to where you got the tyres/wheels fitted and get them to double-check the torques and stuff
