Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi, I wouldn't think it would be the rear tyres. Need a bit more info on "gearbox surges". If it is that your trans is slipping ( reving high but speed is slow ) when engaging second and all of a sudden jerks into gear then you have to readjust throttle cable to gearbox connected to accelerator cable and/or recheck fluid level. It could also be in limp mode which unfortunately has to be reset by by auto sparky.

For legal reasons the tyres on your vehicle must be of all the same profile . That is for example if you have 195- 75 15 on the car you must have all 195-75 15 on the car. You cannot have 195-75 15 on the front and 195-45 15 on the rear. IT is not just a bit smaller it lowers that rear of the car by 30mm. However it may cause the problem but I would expect it to happen in all gears . I suspect that the engine RPM's ares hanging on a bit and not reducing sufficiently for when the clutch is again for second gear. There is a large ratio change from 1 to 2 and less so for the remainder. Run fault codes to check for idle sensor/ accelerator position problem sensor.;

It should not be a problem as long as he aligns the tires in a four wheel alinement it will be fine, on trucks some axles stick out more on one side than they do the other so don't worry about it, if he's any good he can still align them it's just more work for him.

Yes there is adjustment. You need to get the alignment checked out. It could be worn bushes and/or damage to the suspension linkages and struts.

Welcome to fixYa !
you might have the rear bush problem cause it handle the cars smoothly, ... moreover check the rims sometimes RIMS get curvy or erected( i dont have the word for it right now , meaning = bends) by jumps or bumps( or even if you cross a speed-breaker in high speed) that causes wobbling .. more over check for EXCELS. sometimes EXCELS cause these problem .
do write back for your problem is solved or did it remain unsolved !!
we are here to help you .!
