Welcome to fixYa !

you might have the rear bush problem cause it handle the cars smoothly, ... moreover check the rims sometimes RIMS get curvy or erected( i dont have the word for it right now , meaning = bends) by jumps or bumps( or even if you cross a speed-breaker in high speed) that causes wobbling .. more over check for EXCELS. sometimes EXCELS cause these problem .

do write back for your problem is solved or did it remain unsolved !!

we are here to help you .!
best Regards

Balance problems are usually tire, wheel, and driveline issue. If your vehicle is all or rear wheel drive and you have a balance issue then have the rear axles checked. I know that Audi uses hafl shafts (also known as cv axles) in the rear and front. If one is bent or has a bad joint it will cause vibration. Was your tire and wheel dealer a big company or a mom and pop shop? The training from one place to another can be quite different. I worked for National Tire and Battery for 10 years and had to go through a lot of training just to touch a wrench. balancing tires is not as easy as just throwing the wheel on the balancer and slapping weights on.

Beginning at 50 - 60 mph, now get light front-end vibration with both old and new tires.


the wheels probably need balancing, take it to your local tyre depot and they can do it for you.

My montana shakes/vibrates up and down when speed passed 75 mph. It is ok below 60 mph


Most likely a tire/wheel balance issue. The weights that are used to balance the tires can sometimes fall off. Generally how far out of balance it is determines when and how bad it will shake. Unfortunately this is not fixable without a tire balancing machine, has to got to a tire shop.

Were the tires rotated or replaced recently? Most major tire shops will check the balance for you at little or no charge if you take it back to the shop where the work was done.

You can also try to identify the problem tire by rotating the front and rear tires one side at a time. For example, if the vibration is coming from the front, swap the front and rear passenger side tires and drive the vehicle again. If the vibration moves to the back it's most likely the (now) passenger side rear tire that's out of balance. If the is no change, try the driver's side tires.

Hope this helps!

If it is a tire related howl you are getting as well as the vibration through the steering wheel once you hit about 60 mph there is a number of things you need to do.

1. If you have not had a wheel alignment carried out on the vehicle in the last 6 months then have it done at a reputable suspension specialist (not a tyre dealer). Check your front tires for wear pattern in any event as uneven wear on the tyre is a sure sign of poor alignment. Bad alignment can also contribute to vibration problems. I will guarantee you that when you get the alignment checked it will be out. I am not sure if the rear alignment is adjustable on your model but if it is you will in fact need a 4 wheel alignment. (REFER point 7 also)

2. When the alignment and other necessary front end work is done check to see if the problems persists..

3. I assume your vehicle has the steel rims fitted with the plastic wheel cover. Remove the covers on the front wheels and check for the vibration. If it disappears then the out of balance condition is caused by the covers. (This would not explain the tyre howl though).

4. Remove both front wheels (clean them) and check for damage to the rims on both sides including outside scuffing. (Check tyres also.)
If the steel rim is bent or warped it will not run true and you will get vibration and the tyres will tend to be noisy on the road. It is not always easy to identify a warped steel rim from a visual check. Spinning the wheel on a wheel balance machine should normally show this up though.
If you have alloy wheels fitted these tend to crack and break rather than bend or warp.

5. Out of balance wheels.

It is possible for a wheel to be so badly manufactured that no amount of balancing on a tyre balance machine will fix it. This is a particular problem with cheap alloy wheels but even good quality wheel manufacturers will occasionally let a bad alloy wheel slip past their quality control .

6. Tyres.
If you buy budget tyres you are generally buying poor performance and potentially poorly constructed tyres. Tyres can be produced with inbuilt heavy spots that will make them impossible to properly balance. You will forever have a balance problem (and hence vibration) with such tyres. A good manufacturer will not allow such tyres to slip through quality control. Others are much less fussy. It is always a bad decision to purchase tyres in the lower price ranges.
In your case it is quite possible that if your wheels are ok the tyres are badly constructed and it is not possible to balance them properly. (This would not explain the tyre howl though).

7. Given the age of your vehicle you should have the front suspension and steering components inspected. It is possible that wear in critical components could be the source of the problem. When you take the car to the suspension specialist for the wheel alignment you need to have the front end fully checked over first and any problem areas attended to.

Without test driving and pysically inspecting the vehicle it is not possible to identify the source or sources of the problems. My best estimate is that there are significant wear problems in front end components and that your front end aligment is also out.
However , I hope this helps.

Getting a vibration at around 45 to 50 mph from I beleive the rear of the van. Had tires balanced but did not solve the problem.


Hi, if you have vibrations at certain speeds then this is an indication that the wheels need balancing.
If the vibration is felt through the steering wheel then this would suggest that the front wheels need balancing if the back have been done correctly and the weights have not fell off then it would be wise to get the front done.
To be on the safe side get the front done any way.

Now if after doing this it still dont solve the problem then you need to start looking at the tyres make sure they are not damaged or bulging in any areas.
If this still dont solve the problem then this would then suggest that one or more of the wheels are damaged.

The damage could be caused by holes in the road or even hitting the curb the weakest part of the weel is the inner rim the part that you cant see from the side of the car if you have bumped the inner rim then this would cause the rim to crease slighlty the problem being that even after balancing the wheels up correctly if their is any damage you would get the vibrations you are noticing.

The first thing i would suggest is to check the weights have not fallen off the back wheels if they are still on then try swapping the front wheels with the back wheels then give it a try and see if this makes any differance if its worse then they need re-balancing if the problem is still no differant then i would get someone to check how true the wheels just to make sure they are not buckled as is often the case.

It might just be a case of getting all the wheels balanced again as you often find that sometimes after you have had them balanced the weights can fall off so this would need checking.

If their is no problem with the balancing and the wheels are in perfect condition then the only other thing that can cause the problem your having would be warped brake disks but this i would only look at after you are 100% sure that the wheels are perfect.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I have a 97 s320 and i get a vibration between 50-55mph after that it smooths out


The 1st thing to get looked at is the wheel balance.Have them checked.At the same time,if the tyres are o.k. have them rotated.This means you swap the tyres from the front to the back.Always keep the tyres on the same side of the car.So left rear goes to left front and the same on the righthand side.Also,a wheel alignment should be done.These are a tyre shop job.Cheap and doesn't take that long.If these don't correct the problem,the next thing to get looked at are the front wheel bearings.Get the tyres done 1st.This is the 1st step and also the most common problem.Hope this helps
