    Default Vibration at speed. ????????

    Hi guys
    Been having a vibration felt through the whole car. At low speed upto 50mph it's ok past that the car seems to wobble. I thought It was wheel balancing so had the fronts done then Took the veccy up to Sheffield at the weekend and noticed that its still there..... No where near as bad but still there. It seems to happen through acceleration and I usually stick cruise on at 80mph being a long journey I had time to listen more and there seems to be a bit of a rhythm to it it's like d,d,d,d,d,d........ D,d,d,d,d,d,d,d..........d,d,d,d,d,d,d,
    Any ideas?
    I didn't balance the rears.... And have noticed on occasion when braking I get a feeling of warped discs but not sure if it's related as discs and pads were replaced last year.

    Anyone else had this and can point me in the right direction. I assume it's nothing major as it just flew through mot but then again.... Suppose it depends on the tester.

    Usually rear wheel balance problems are felt through the car, front wheel balance problems are felt through the steering wheel, as you have just had the fronts done swap them to the rear and see if the problem moves to the steering wheel

    Check for a flat on your tyres. If the car has stood a while there may be aflat across the tyre, also check for any bulges in the sidewalls or any other irregularities.

    All valid points.... Tyres are due for renewal very soon. Might see about tracking then tyre wear seems even though but you never know

    As long as its nothing major I'll stop worrying.

    Check your tyre pressures. I have a vibration in mine as one of the front tyres has a slow puncture.
