Just wanted to say hello to everyone in the forum. I,m the new owner of a 01 ZTS (black) sedan, its a 5 speed with 60,00km on it. Right now it,s bone stock but I hope to do some mods on it soon. Probibly the first thing is to get the windows tinted and then a magnaflow cat-back system. A couple of questions for you fanatics out there, I,m noticing a bit of vibration in the front end at speeds over 100kph (60mph) . Is this normal or something to be concerned about? Also it came with Firestone Firehawk GTA tires on it, are they any good for moderate winter driving or should I invest in some snow tires?
Thanks in advance for any replies....

probably your wheels out of balance or something, mine does the same thing.

Vibrating is a common problem with after-market rims. At least from past experience.... even with them balanced and what not.

Welcome!...It could also be the tires starting to wear out, mine have tread left, but the edges are feathered and starting to cup, with only 17,000 miles ( I do abuse them a little)[:D]

you should get tires rotated and balanced every 6k for optimal performance...I get mine done every 3k cause its free :) why not? :) When I bought my tires the tire place does it for free so thats cool...

Welcome. I had my tires rotated & balanced at my last oil change (6K).
I hope that you come back often!
