Hi, has any body had this, at 80 mph on the motorway i noticed a slight vibration through the steering wheel and the whole car,not exsesive but enough to get your attention,i backed off and the vibes went ,took it back up to 80 they came back,i was wondering if it could be wheel balance or is there another issue,any ideas welcome ,thanks.

Do you think just the front wheels or would rear ones have the same effect,i noticed on the front wheels one side has one weight on inside and the other has five weights on the outer side,maybe ive lost some weights at some time,best to have them done anyway .
thanks for reply,

If you can feel it through the steering more than the car, then front
