I have an appointment with the dealer in 1 hour and they are suggesting that i buy 4 new rims and tires. I think that it must be something else, but not sure how to identify it.

hello, have them check the wheels to make sure they are not bent also the brakes because bad brakes can make a vibration as well.

They checked the rims and did a raod force balance on the tires. everything looks ok.
The brakes were just changed under warrenty 3 months agao. The vibration is while I'm driving on the highway at 113 - 120 km/hr
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

ok does the vibration feel more in the steering wheel? or in the seat like a massage chair?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

we figured that much, but not sure how to proceed
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

well i know that for me to tell you exactly what is wrong will be extremely hard considering that i am no where near the car. so im just going to explain some things that can cause this.

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

meaning is the rear larger than the front?

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

does the vibration come and go at that speed or does it come and stay super constant? does anything you do with the accelerator make it worse or better?

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
the wheels are staggered. The vibration comes on and is constant, accelerator has no effect on vibration
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

ok, can you try to drive it in a lower gear ? and see if the vibration stays? also have you driven it up to speed and then put the transmission in neutral to see if the vibration goes away?

hopefully they can help you out, i will opt out maybe another expert can assist, vibration issues are the hardest ones as there is no common issue. it all has to be addressed and properly diagnosed.
