another thought: i have a set of alloys that have been balanced and = rebalanced but one of the wheels seems to have had a hard enough knock = that it's slightly out of whack. it just can't be balanced right. i = have the same vibration problem as you describe. though the vibration = starts at around 100kph (60mph) and cuts out once i've exceeded 130 to = 140kph (~85mph). the last balancing got the wheel to a point where the = vibration is tolerable. so i just try not to drive at speeds between = 100 and 140 !!

The rear tyres are new, I asked the garage to replace = them=20 when I bought the car because there wasn't a lot of tread left. The = front=20 tyres aren't new, but they have reasonable tread, and that's all I = really=20 looked at when I bought it. Bearing in mind that the tracking _was_=20 definitely off when I had it checked, I guess it's quite likely that=20 they've had uneven wear. I'll have a look at them -- do you think the problem would be obvious to = someone who doesn't know exactly what he's looking for?
