    Default wheel wobble/ balancing

    Guys , do you find these Vectras are a bit on the susceptible side to wheel balancing problems, in that it don't take long before the wheels/ tyres seem to go out of balance, mines been pretty good since I had new tyres fitted about 18 months ago and 9,000 miles later, (don't do a lot of miles!!) I'm just starting to feel slight wheel wobble through steering wheel at about 70 mph or so, pretty much as I did before I had these tyres fitted, just thinking that after 9,000 miles and the tyres being bed in as it were, it might be just that are due for re-balancing?
    Cheers Pete

    They are well known for being very sensitive to this. However I have never had one start to wobble unless I have hit something or lost a weight.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Popped the car down to WIM (www.wheels-inmotion.co.uk) this morning and got the wheels balanced turns out the fronts were 30g out, best I had was one of them on the back at 10g out, so all balanced up now and hopefully no wobble !! trouble is, on route home from there, not one single road was I able to get anywhere near 70mph to test it due to sheer volume of traffic, so Monday on the M4 will soon tell if all is well , sure it will be !!
    Cheers Pete
