Hi All,

After many many months of fairly trouble free motoring I have an issue that I can't pin down.

I had some 19" wheels (after market) that cracked so I replaced them with some Mercedes 18" wheels, I now have a steering wheel shake 55mph+

The wheels were refurbed and had new tyres with no issues flagged, I then got all 4 of them checked again at a different alloy wheel place.

Has anybody had anything like this before? I'm wondering what to check next?

Thanks in advance 🤞
 
If you are happy the wheels are balanced then it could be that there is some grit lodged between the wheel flange and hub assembly. Take the front wheels off and lightly emery cloth the two mating surfaces so that they butt together perfectly when they are put back on.

I have tried cleaning the mating surface already :(
 
Were the MB 18" wheels new or used? If the latter then one could be fractionally buckled? Try swapping the wheels front to back (assuming they're not staggered) to see what happens to the steering wheel shake then.
