Hi All,

Noticed a wobble at 70-75 mph on the motorway

Any idea the causes forst thought was alignment but leaning towards wheel balance?

Any thought?

I had similar problem with mine until I recently got them refurbished and balanced, they are now running spot on, so I would agree with you and get them rebalanced . :thumbup:

Just had new tyres fitted, first time I had it to 80 since & noticed a slight shake on the steering wheel. I think I will have to have a re-visit to the garage when I get chance, it might have thrown a weight.

Definitely a balance thing.

Must be catching. Got the same thing started recently on one of ours at about 75.

Been putting off getting the balancing checked as it's due new tyres this year anyway.

Just dropped it off to get balanced and tracked.

Let's see what they say.
