    When you say juddering, do you mean a vibration felt through the car / steering wheel? Or are you losing power?

    Almost certain to be wheel balance. Quick and easy at your local tyre fitter

    There are certain speeds where wheel misbalance will be felt. my old Vec-B was around 71-73mph then went away as I went past that (on the private track obviously.....)

    But different cars/wheels have their own speed when this shows up. Think Tony's right!

    Best thing is, wheel balance is cheap to fix. No more than a fiver per wheel
