    Wheel vibration Again

    Ok guys my cars been in garage to help solve my wheel vibration at 70 -80mph My balance is all correct and my tracking is all correct. The garage also checked to see if anything was loose underneath.

    I have sri/coupe turbo wheels with 215/40/17 Unroyal rainsports 2.

    So what else could it be???

    Try cleaning the faces of the hubs - when I first got my VX I had a bit of wheel wobble, I cleaned the wheels and cleaned the faces of the hub and wheel and bingo, not even the slightest bit of wobble now!

    Also, it could be that the garages balancing machine is old and knackered.

    check your tyres for flat spots, one of my dads tyres looked like it had collapsed inside and this caused the outside of the tyre to go bald causing the wobble, it was only 2'' max but made all the difference.
