Tyre juddering

Hi, thought Iíd already posted this but cannot see, apology if it pops up twice. Iíve had my 2011 2.2 CDTi for a little over a month and have started to notice once the car has a kind of tyre juddering/hopping when turning at slow speeds or out of junctions, also in reverse and this seems to get a lot worse when been driving for a while but then goes again when the car has been sitting/cooled down, has anyone else experienced this or have some ideas of what it could be?

I have a 2013 exclusive. I don't get this problem, have you noticed any excessive tyre wear. I think some cars will scuff tyres at low speed on hard lock. I used to work in a car factory and the sound of tyres scuffing the concrete floor whilst manouvering was quite common. Have you considered getting your tracking checked.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I recently had 3 new tyres (4th was ok with only a couple of mm less tread), I did also think that could be the problem due to being a different make but the tyre fitters say this shouldnít cause a problem

Does the juddering happen when turning both left and right, or only in one of them? The reason I'm asking is that some years ago my VX Cavalier started juddering and jumping to the left on right hand bends and corners, really scary. Previously I had kerbed it hard on the nearside to avoid a head on collision with some nutter cutting across a bend. The car had to go back to VX to re-set the steering/suspension and tracking alignment. As you have only had the car a month, it is possible that the previous owner may have kerbed it or something similar. If you haven't already done so, I would have Kwikfit (fairly cheap) or another fitter check and adjust the tracking if needed. You also have a fourth tyre different to the other three. It's usually recommended to have two matching tyres on each axle, so it may be better to put the odd tyre on the rear, or replace it. Hope that's of some help.
