  1. Thank you SamZ. I had the wheel balancing and rotation done four weeks back but the high speed brake shake is still persist. Now, one thing I'm cleared about is that that the problem is not with the tyres, if it's so the shake should have gone with the wheel rotation or should have reduced noticeably when you put the tyres on front to the back. So, as a next resort I'm plannig to get the slider pins checked for lubrication, resurface the brake pads and rotors (hope there's enough width left). I'll buy new rotors as my final resort since they cost over 150$ for a pair and resurfacing would just cost 25$ including the labour charges. I'll update the result in this thread.
  2. Thank you, Erwin & Hannah! Planning to bring the car to the vendor whom I bought the tyres from for a complete check up coming weekend. Hope it's just those easy to fix 'balance' issue as many of you suggested.
  3. Hey, thanks for answering. They tyres are just couple of weeks older and done only 2000 KMs so far. So, do you think the balancing was not done property when I got them fitted? Many other articles suggests that it could be due to the resurfaced rotors, what's you take on that? Thank you so much!
  4. Hello All, I'm facing steering wheel vibrations when I go past 120KMPH. Can someone please tell me what's causing the problem? The car (steering) vibrates on the following two occasions. i. When I go in high speed and then continue to press the gas ii. When I go in high speed and apply brake (it's shaking really bad) Just wanted to give a little background to see if any of these things can relate to the problem. #1- I resurfaced my front rotors couple of months back and put new brake pads. And the steering wheel pump was making a squeaking noise which was also fixed by the mechanic back then. After couple of weeks, the ABS lighted turned on itself and there's this vibrating sound (like two metals are in contact) when I applied brake. The steering wheel made some weird noises in slow turns as well. So, I took the car to a different mechanic who changed one of the ABS sensors and I was told that the steering wheel noise while turning in slow speed was due to a loosen nut. As for the noise that came in when I applied brake, it disappeared on its own. I'm still not sure that vibrating sound was due to ABS failure or something that's still lurking!. #2 - I changed all my four tyres couple of weeks back after spotting dry rots in my old Michelin in just under 30K KMs of use. The fitting and alignment was done by the vendor. I'm currently clueless as to what's causing my car/steering wheel to vibrate in high speeds especially when I apply brakes. I would much appreciate your help in understanding the problem and whether it's an indication of any costly repair. Thank you so much for the help!
