Tire Concerns: What is a flatheaded tire?
My car was running fine when I put it on a car carrier on a move from Massachusetts to Chicago.
When it arrived in Chicago 2 days later, as soon as I drove it over 20 miles an hour, I noticed a problem that seemed to be coming from the rear end. I took it to the dealer who said I had 2 tires that were flat-headed, and needed to be replaced. No problems before the transport -- problems immediately after.
Could the transportation have caused or contributed to the problem? The mechanic said it can be caused by driving hard with the emergency brake on, but we never did that.
