    check your tyres dude, could have a dodgy tyre or you need to get your balancing checked...

    but could the weights coming off the wheel really cause the whole car to shake and vibrate really really bad????

    Wasn't the M5/M6 was it by any chance?

    I too, am experiencing wheel judder...

    I was going along the motorway, then suddenly, anything above 60, and I have trouble holding the steering wheel

    Got the wheels re-weighted, so thought itd be ok, nope, coming home yesterday, and the darn thing is still shaking its self to death..

    Any ideas peeps?

    could be a front bush
    i'd say front as the vibration goes straight through the steering making the vibration feel much worse than the rear,
    i have vibration from one of my rear wheels due to a small buckle, but i did have a nasty judder on the front untill i found and replaced the near side track control arm which is an easy job anyone can do (just keep a hacksaw handy if the balljoint spins lol)

    just found out that the passanger front tyre was at fault as it had huge bulges on the side of the tyre so got it replaced and all is fixed

    Thanks
