steering vibrations

Hi Guys,

The vibration happens around 140KM/h and higher and am thinking it's the wheel balancing. Let me know if you guys know of a good balancing shop in GTA. If not, I'm going to take it to bmw.
Thanks,

I agree... it has to be the balancing or even a slightly bent wheel. Are you getting road noise?
I usually just go to Speedstar on Bullock drive in markham for mounting and balancing.

Good independent shop will do a better job then the dealer for balancing IMO every time.

Tirecraft on Queensway does a good job too.

Road force balancing at Parkview. No more vibrations. They charge $139+tax...Little steep for balancing, but whatever. The car runs great now, so that's all that matters!
