    Default Rear wheel wobble after new tyres replacement

    Hello good evening guys, recently I had both the tyres changed. Now the rear wheel wobbles at low speed, especially when riding with a pillion.

    What could be the cause?

    Please mention your bike, stock and current tyre specs.

    Looks like you have been sold a defective tyre or the tyre hasn't been mounted on the rim properly.

    I suspect the wheel alignment could've gone for a toss. Many people don't give a damn about it.

    Have a similar issue with my Unicorn 160. Started hearing the loose chain noise so took it to a neighborhood garage. The guy loosened the nuts, pulled the wheel back and tightened everything. Everything seemed fine but 2 days later started to feel a wobble like a back wheel steer. Felt it especially at low speeds and circular ramps (like at malls, flyovers). Took it back to the garage and the guy changed some bush for 200rs. Again it seemed fine for 2 days but its back to the snakey wobbly ride. I have decided to ditch the FNG and take it back to Honda service.
