Hi,
I changed my rear tyres to stock which are 205/65/R15 94H, and i got one of them rebalanced and when i am driving at 100km/h it makes the steering wheel vibrate alot and it only stops when i slow down to about 80km/h.

So does anyone know a solution to this problem?

Thanks :D

tyres are either flat spotted, have a bubble or are just rubbish tyres...

good as in good tread or good as in decent brand??

I got a brand new cheap a** 18" tyre that is pretty much out of round, looks great but when it was on the car the car vibrated like bad wheel balance..

providing your wheels were balanced right, there are generally only a few things it can be, are the wheels done up properly, a bad tyre or a buckled rim...

The tyres are a good brand, but the tread on all of my tyres are different types so could that have anything to do with it?

Is the vibration coming though the steering wheel or through the car
Have you had the front tyres balanced

The vibration is coming through the steering wheels, i also checked the wheels nuts and they are all good.

Bridgestone in hoppers crossing did the wheel balancing, so its all good, need to do some more test and see where the problems lies.

just because a tyre joint did it, doesn't mean it's good. A weight could've fallen off
