I have a 2007 6 MPS. Just got two brand new tyres fitted on the rear, and first thing I notice as soon as I leave the shop is a vibration when decelerating with the transmission engaged. If I put the clutch in it disappears, and it's not evident under acceleration.
Thing is....I used to have another MPS, and experienced the same issue. I didn't get to the bottom of it last time as I sold the car soon after.
Has anyone had a similar issue?

If you only got two tires instead of all four the AWD system might be having a fit. The car does not like having tires that aren't totally identical in circumference, and if there two old tires have wear on them it might be enough. You might be able to test this by pulling the hand brake up one click while driving which disables the AWD system. Different amounts of grip between the new and old tires may be tripping up the traction control also.

If I'm right you need to get the other tires quick or you'll be needing a new transfer case.
