    Extreme vibration in steering wheel between 70 and 80mph

    I have got a Astra Mk4 with -40 mm springs and 18" rims. but i am experiancing vibration in the steering wheel around 70 and 80 mph, i was experiancing the same problem when i was running the car as standard. but i've just had 2 new tyres fitted with balancing all round and tracking done and now the vibration is unbearable. but the only thing is it will excelerate out of the vibration at about 85 mph and only starts vibrating at 67mph. Can any one shed any light on the situation

    I would have suggested that the wheels aren't balanced, but if you've had that checked then I'm not sure.

    I had the same problem, and had to back twice and get them rebalanced before the vibration stopped.

    Get them balanced again - make sure you get it FOC.
