    Default Intermittant vibration through steering wheel....any ideas?

    On my way to the Scottish meet today I noticed my car has developed a vibration at around 70mph.

    Acceleration doesn't stop it but slowing does (eventually) something else that stops it is going round bends but it will eventually come back when on a straight.

    The car has a very slight pull to the right too but brakes perfectly straight. Anyone had anything similar? I replaced the inner track rods and rod ends in April with genuine vx parts so I'm pretty much ruling them out and going down the lower ball joint/lower arm bush route. Anyone got anything to add, I'm gonna have a look over it tomorrow

    I'm going through the same just now and it is doing my head in. Wheels are balanced, geometry is ok. Wheels/tyres are fine. Put 2 new springs on it not long ago and the shocks are only a few months old. No play in any bushes but I replaced the ARB ones because the had some cracking. Still doing it, 70mph it really kicks in and can't drive through it. Got no idea what else it could be

    Tbh after reading a few stories about neuton nt8000 tyres it could well be but I did have a quick check of them a couple of weeks ago when the wheels were off for cleaning and couldn't see any irregularities with them but I will have another check tomorrow.

    They were Fullrun. Not a great tyre, no match for the weight of the V6 Derv and noisy as hell too. A bizarre thing was that after it had been jacked up and put back down it seemed to be a lot better for 20 miles or so. It didn't become apparent until it was up on the type of ramp where it was still stood on the wheels. 2 seperate tyre garages missed the cracked walls too!

    What tyres have you got?

    had similar with neutrons must have started to go outer shape after a while no amount of balancing would put it right.
    All suspension and steering components changed.

    i started to think it was wheels

    guy in demon Tweeks assured me it was tyres
    changed to good years and all gone

    so from my experience I'd say even if tyres look ok change them. Or live with it until they need changed lol

    I thought it was constant however I brought it up to 70 today (usually sit at 60 on motorway) and it's gone. Then when I hit the M876 opened it up again and it was back. I'll rebalance my wheels again the next day or 2 but I dont think it's going to be them

    I have known it to be water inside the wheel from air lines etc that freezes into a lump overnight and causes this problem. It is rare but does occur
