If i am not mistaken,

Aura alloys = warranty, so that is your worst case scenario.

First, go get a second opinion.

Second isolate the problem as being with your rims.
Maybe you can put JUST the rims, (without the tyre) on the balancing machine and see ?? (< this might not work because of the weight of the valve not being counter balanced by the tyre''s heavy spot as it normally is?....but was just an idea)

ps - also just browse through this thread > http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...balancing.html (Wheel Alignment & Balancing)
