I found that the Anniversary wheels (8 spoke) when balanced with the 'invisible' wheels were still causing problems. I tracked this down to the weights hitting the front callipers. A rebalance with the weights further in resolved this. "chrisnew" <chrisnewnopsamorld.com> wrote in message news:4lNc9.4975$YP6.115089nopsamfep1-win.server.ntli.net... Changing the heater matrix is a long and fiddly job. Wheel shake can still occur after the wheels have been balanced, if the rims are out of round-sounds improbable, but I know!
