Roads in my area have been awful lately and a hit a unmarked, water filled pothole doing 100km/h with at least both left tires. Didn't notice any issues for a month.

Swapped tires onto my existing wheels only to find they vibrated at highway speeds. Wheels changed corners. Tires had cords letting go.

Bought new tires(wheels changed corners again) assuming they were the issue but now I get  a vibration until I make a turn and it totally goes away. Assuming wheels traveling different distances and end up "clocked" differently to each other balance each other out.

Car still tracks dead straight and didn't have any weird wear issues.

Wonder if anyone had experienced it.
