In Reply to: Wheel Balacning Problem posted by Lou Starelli on January 06, 2000 at 17:15:26:
I'm having somewhat of the same problem. I've got 7k miles on the car and I have a high frequency vibration in the steering wheel that starts at about 80 and continues on up thru 100. My problem just started though. The guys at America's Tire Co. in San Jose found my right front Pilot was slightly out of round and they replaced it under warranty (the guys at America's Tire been very patient and went out of their way to help me). Replacing the tire helped a bit, but I still get the vibration (the rear-view mirror doesn't vibrate at 100 anymore).
The car goes into the dealer on Tues, hopefully they can find something.
Post if you find any solution.
: I have a new 1999M3 that has had a front wheel balancing problem from day 1. There is a significant vibration in the steering wheel starting at 60 thru 100. After repeated attempts to balance the dealer replaced the original Dunlops with BF Gforce. This helped but didnt fix. He then replaced the Goodriches with Pilots. This helped more but still didnt fix. The vibration is some what less and now starts at 80 thru 100+ but is still there. The dealer drove and said this is normal. I dont think so and would like any input I can get on simular problems so I can go back and get it right.
: My next try is to have the wheels balanced at a nondealer shop that does on car balancing to see if this gets it and if so I'm going to assume its a rotor or hub problem. Any Thoughts on this idea??
