Due to tyre wobble on steering wheel, i got the tyres balanced recently, this did not improve anything, besides "tracking" any suggestions

PS: these are not the same tyres from new.

Hi

Welcome to the club

Is the wheel wobble at a given speed or does it do it at any speed, can you drive through it?

Need more info on this. Speed and front or back wobble.

Jack up the front wheels and try moving the tyre by holding it North south for play and then east west for any movement or knocking noise or movement from it.

Get the wheels taken off and put back on a bit more carefully check that there is no grit in between wheel and hub.

Check hub is centered properly.

Then if no joy, get the tyres removed and replaced and rebalanced.

Check for bulges in the walls and tread.

Check the alloys for true.

Get your suspension rubbers checked.

One of my front lower inner joints had gone and there was serious wobble under braking and general wobble when cruizing.

If they are gone, you can get replacement bushed from LPD Auto in the USA, from ebay.com

Good luck.
