Hi All

i have just had new disks and pads all round and also new 18" alloy wheels as my last alloys had seen better days, it did have a bit of a steering wobble/vibration before but as i have not owned the car long thought i would leave it until i had brakes/rims fitted, ive had the wheels balanced and tracked and worn the brakes in correct but its still there and it gets quote bad at around 50mph....any ideas? its really getting me down now as i saved for so long to get my car and now i feel like i have chosen the wrong one :crybaby: not sure if it makes a difference or not but i have a 2003 is200LE auto

thanks all

well ive had the wheels re-balanced-tracked and aligned again.......it took 5 hours to get it right, it still does not feel 100% correct but a lot better....how would i know if the caliper had failed? ive had new disks and pads but want to get this fully cured......thanks for all the replies and help

i had the same problem when i got my car. id say you have a siezed caliper! check the wheels after driving if 1 is over hot thats the 1 that needs changing. i got 1 in a breakers for e50.easy fix dont let it put you off the car mine hasnt missed a beat in 2 years!!!!

I had the simmilar problem with my old BMW 3 series. try to get your bearings checked out. the problem i had was bearings had to be re allinged or something ( i cannot remember fully)

this could be somehing serious. try to avoid main rolads and stay under 40mph just to be on the safe side. where are you based. i could recomend a good garrage if you like.
