Steering wheel vibration.

As we all know, there have been a lot of issues with 2014 WK2 tires causing the steering wheel to shake/vibrate. Especially the Michelin Latitudes. I for one had this issue from the start on my 2014 Limited and it still comes and goes after numerous attempts at the dealer and a local shop. It's better but not totally gone. For those of you with the 2016 WK2's, is this still occurring? I plan on leasing again with a new 2017 in a few months, but I can't imagine having to go through the same tire issue again.

Re: Steering wheel vibration.

MY16 and MY17 use different tires...

Did you ever change the tires on your MY14? If they refused to balance, that would hopefully mitigate.

I did not buy new tires. I am leasing so I did not think it was worth spending nearly $1,000+ for new tires/install.

Re: Steering wheel vibration.

So I'm guessing you couldn't get the dealer to swap them out when they couldn't be properly balanced?
