Re: Steering wheel vibration at 70MPH

Guys please don't think that just because you had your tires Roadforced that is the cure all. The issues are vehicle suspension sensitivity and the truth you need your wheel perfectly mounted to the balancer 1st and then make sure ALL Residual Vibrations are under a .10oz. 99% of the shops out there DO NOT DO THIS!!!


Please look thru this thread for all the details or PM me and I will help you through the process. Thanks


Steering wheel shimmy anybody?

The biggest problem is finding a place that will take time to balance correctly. Will going to a BMW or Audi Dealer give a little more percision on a balance?

At least go to a shop that will take the time to do it right - you may be better off with a shop that specializes in oversize/off-road wheels and tires.

Made a huge difference vs the dealer for me - and the price is often the same

Thanks maybe a second shop is best bet. I feel owners shouldn't have to be paying out of pocket for balancing on a new vehicle. Another thing it seems we don't see many owners of 2015 or later here with this issue from the factory, I wonder if something changed.

Re: Steering wheel vibration at 70MPH

I had this problem. Got Goodyear to warranty all four tires. Replaced with Michelin. Shake went away. HOWEVER, the steering wheel has lots of feed back and shakes going over bumps. It feels like it wants to skate across the highway. Had multiple shops look at it. They say everything seems fine. This happens at any speeds over 60/70
