    vibration

    Hi all ive got an astra 2.0di van year2000 i fitted standard 15" vauxhall alloy wheels since then i have a terible vibration/shake when i hit 80mph plus. Had the wheels balanced and tracking checked all is fine so took it and had all bearings checked thay are fine. So then somebody mentioned alloy wheel spigit locators when i looked there isnt any so my question is do i need them with standard vaux alloy wheels?. Hope you guys can help as this is really annoying.

    you could have buckled an alloy. First thing i would do is borrow some wheels off a mate and try them...

    my wheels shook at 70+mph and when i replaced they were fine.

    spigots are only needed on aftermarket rims where the centre bore is machined at a set size then spigot rings are needed to reduce the size down to meet the hub diameter

    still sounds like a balancing issue to me

    do u actually watch the fitter balance the rims in person?

    were all weights removed then re-balanced....ie not just more weights clagged on to compensate

    what tyres are on?

    some tyres are notorious for producing a vibration similar to a balancing issue when its just the tyres are crap
