Tires Bad?


Vehicle Information: Year: 1979; Body Type: Targa;

First, tires are Kumho Ecstas, sat for about one and a half years. Got car running again. Some shimmy in front end, replaced tie rods with Turbo set. Thought this would solve perhaps. Nope. No clunks or rattles or that sort of thing. Considerable bump steer, falling away from the crown of the road and a shimmy at approx 55-75. Shimmy is side to side, not like an unbalanced tire. Also, feels as if the tire pressures are too low, particularly through corners. I played around with the pressures but it made no difference. Sound like these tires have internally failed and are ready to be boat fenders? Any thing else I need to be looking at?Thanks and have a great weekJustin
