Tires and Wheels problem
2002 Volvo XC70 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 89,000 miles

Hello,
I recently bought the model Volvo listed above.
The front tires needed to be replaced and I did so.
The rear tires are still good, so I did not replace them. After driving on the highway, I can smell what seems like burning rubber. I took it back to the repair people and they said they could not find anything wrong. The car did not do this before I changed the tires. Any ideas?
Thanks, Angelo

Tires balanced before installed. After driving and when you get the smell, get out and check the tires are they hot or smelly?

Ask the repair shop if you take it in to another shop and they find the problem and its their fault will they flip the bill?
