1000KM on the Car


and the Cars' steering wheel vibrates after 120KM/h , @ 150 even more ...etc



i went to the dealer and they aligned the wheels and tires with new weights



i managed to reach 100KM/h (too much traffic), but it seems to be still there, LESS but still there !



Anyone had the same Poblem ?





on one wheel they had put toooo many weights, i wonder if it is Normal and i should Claim a new wheel Or tyre !



Thanks for Recommendations

have your tyres checked incase they have become miss-shapen and go to an independant place to have your wheels balanced, i had a similar wobble on a new focus st i had, it turned out the balancing was miles out.

I agree with SILICA666 Does sound like "Run Out" wheels or tyres out of true (round) I have even had a brand new car with a tyre with a slight bulge which caused your problem, one thing to remembertyre specialists will try andbalance wheels/tyresbut some of these guys are better than others.Hope that helps.

I think I have a very similiar problem, maybe the same - I have just posted a very similiar problem. It is not the balancing - this was checked by an independent garage.The steering wants to go from one side to the other when you hit a pot hole or bump. I am not happy with the steering.

You could try having the steering geometry laser aligned. There are specialists that do this for car body shops. At one I worked at we even had a HGV checked.

As always, there's always a charge and have no idea of the cost.

Also saw another thread today talking about poor steering at about 40mph.
