    steering problem

    when im driving between 70mph and 80mph my steering wheel starts shaking but when i turn a corner at that speed then it stops. if i go up to 90mph and go straight or go round a bend then it doesnt shake. anyone else had this problem or does anyone know what it might be. ive already had the tracking checked and my wheels balanced and there alright. ive also had three diffrent sets of wheels on. any ideas anyone??

    ive found out that your wheels have to be properly balanced. i found this out because i got kwik fit to balance them on there machine and it showen that it was way out. so take your wheels down there and then try them again.
