    Again, sorry to hear :-( are you still driving the car or have kept it in TASS/home? not sure why would the stock tyres take so much time to come....keep us updated once you get them fixed and as Andy pointed out, ensure your spare wheel gets replaced too. Good luck !

    Car is at home.. didnt want to leave it at the service center till the tyres come.. I had driven the car last weekend.. The wobbling is still there at speeds over 80KMPH as against the earlier 60KMPH.. Yes I had asked him to check the spare wheel as well.. Planning to take an off from work when they are replacing the tyres to ensure everything is done correctly..

    I also faced this problem just a few days before of my 1st service, they changed few parts (knuckle assembly), rotate tires, aligned etc many a times but unable to resolve the problem. In the process of resolving the pulling issue they introduce a couple of new issues (like LR indicator auto-correction function was damaged, steering wheel was de-aligned etc) to my car :hit . It takes around 2 months (& I submit the car to service station 5 times, a total of around 20 days) for them to finally resolve all the issues. :dancing; incidentally that resolve the pulling issue only aligning the wheel at last!!
    If I ignore the delay, miscommunication & few scratches that they had made on my car while my car was at the service station, I’m satisfied with the service I got.
    It seems that things depend only on the quality & expertise of the mechanic who is actually working on your car. Certainly they are the less paid then those managers, who cannot even communicate properly; then the service executives, who even do not receive calls on their company provided cell phones, forget about keeping the customer updated regarding what’s going on..

    In most cases wheel alignment/ balancing should solve the issue. This is normal things which happens to every vehicle due to various reasons.

    Absolutely.
