    the vibration starts at about 60mph, the guy at the garage said one of the wheels was not balancing properly and has extra weights onit he said the average wheel will have 20 grams on it and he put 90 gram on that 1 to balance it, so im gonna go kwik fit tommorrow see what they say

    90 is alot, i would suggest your rim is damaged buddy, if its enough to notice on the back then its not good, ive lost count of the wheels ive balanced and theres a few that were 100 or more grams and the wheel has always been damaged
