    Hi all.
    Hoping someone here can help.
    I've had new tyres all round and balancing done but after a long high speed run I seem to have a front wheel wobble almost as if a wheel bearing is gone but after slowing down and driving at a slower pace the car will drive normally again. The car is due a service which I will be getting done shortly, however I think this problem will be difficult for a garage to find.
    Any help much appreciated, thanks.

    Wheels may not have been balanced properly, happens all the time or you have bought crap tyres

    The tyres are a good make and if there is a problem with balance surely the vibration would be the consistently

    Have you had the tracking done? Not always it can sometimes only vibrate at certain speeds if the balancing is out

    No only at certain speeds will this show up, mine are between 70-80mph, should be an easy fix mate, take it back as ask them to reveiw, good luck

    Perhaps I should have made myself more clear. I can drive at say 80/85 mph no problem, however after a long run the vibration will appear. If I stop or slow down the problem will disappear again.

    Do you mean you do a run, then park up, then the vibration is there the next time you drive ?
