2000 Boxster S Tire Balancing

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 2000; Engine (type, size, modifications): Flat 6; Total Mileage: 22700; Transmission: Manual;

I purchased this vehicle in Dallas from a very reputable dealer, or I thought. I took it in to Park Place, local dealer, to have it checked out because it was pulling to the right and it had an annoying bounce in tire. After an alignment, $190, and a wheel balance, $150, they sent me on my way. To make a long story short they convinced me that one of front tires was bad it I need an whole new set of N4 Pirelli, $1050. I did what they suggested and the bounce is now worse than it was before. I took it back now twice and Service Manager drove the car and told me with the 18' wheels this is normal. I've driven a lot of cars before and I can't image that if you paid $67K new that this was normal. Do you have any suggestions or possible places to take it to have it checked out?
