steering wheel vibrate when travel ard 100+km/h

Recommended Posts

Gd day all.

 

recently notice that when travel high speed, say ard 100km/h or more (which my speedometer shown), my steering wheel seem to be vibrating. icon_sad.gif

 

Recently had just change new set of rims n tyres, wonder is it the cause of it? (alignment, balancing etc?? )

 

If it so any reliable workshop to recommend? (prefer ard east area if possible)

 

Thanks

Just go back to the place where you changed the rims and tires, then tell them about the problem.

 

It's probably a balancing issue, so they should rectify it at no charge (unless they have to do high-speed balancing)

If you're ngeow, balancing all four would be good, but technically speaking, just the front two would suffice - this is due to the fact that only the front wheels will affect your steering.

 

This is the same reason why when you go for tire rotation, only the wheels which are going to the front will be balanced.

mine also vibrates, but vibrates when i step on the brakes when cruising at 110 to 120 +. Less than 100km/h, stepping on brakes no issue. What could be the cause?

best to get it checked to double confirm..workshops will jack up your car and look for cracks in your bushings..mayb u can do it during one of ur oil change @ BMS or somewhr else..
