I have had my 22s for about 3 weeks now and I was hoping my vibration would go away but it hasnt. I have 22x9.5 Sportrux dinner rolls on 265/35/22 hankook tires. The have a vibration that can only be felt by the driver through the steering wheel at 60 to 70 mph. They are hub centric and 5 on 115. I have also had them rebalanced twice. They are smooth as silk at all other speeds. This is boggling my mind as to what the problem is. Its not really bad but it makes the steering wheel got back and forth when you let it go. The car drives true and straight so I really dont think its an alignment issue. What else am I not thinking about? :eek:uch:

So at 80 or 55 there is no vibration? hmmm, the only thing I can think of is "on the car" balancing. The C like most MB I have owned is very sensitive to balance, I have mild vibration after 3 balances on stock wheels with new tires and will be getting on the car balancing done.

On the car balancing is done with the wheel on the car, it balances all rotating parts, bearing, rotor,wheel, tire, anything that rotates at the wheel. A few specialty shops have this ability.

Warped wheel may be the culprit as stated setting up some wierd harmonics at this speed.

dont you love the fact that you can pay 500 bucks for a wheel and have it be warped? frustrating, i will try to move the front wheels to the back and see what happens, hopefully this will fix it!

what is the name of that great ballancer?

Hudson road force? or? I forgot?

What was the website to locate those ballancers?

That will do the trick if it's out of ballance.

It could be a toe in/out problem. Consult an allignment pro.
Well, contrary to some of wheel FAQ's I am running a +10mm offset w/ the eibach pro kit w/no rubbing. I would obviously reccommend a 15-18 offset if you are considering lowering it, that would be your best bet. I got a real good deal on this setup, and fell in love with the wheel. If I go any lower (cut coil) I will have to mill down a few mm. in order to tuck the wheels.

PS: my sig pic was before the eibachs!

ooh, very nice, it looks dropped a bit, yah those wheels are very nice, i need to get a pic posted of mine, no one knows what the sportrux dinner roll looks like, they have a 6" lip. First step will be two put the front wheels on the back and if that doesnt work, alignment it is. And drop kit soon to follow!
