I feel some vibrations on the steering wheel around 80 mph.

Customer Question
Hi, I feel some...

Hi, I feel some vibrations on the steering wheel around 80 mph

Mechanic's Assistant: How often does the vibration occur, and when did you last have the tires balanced?

I checked balancing just several weeks back (since also was thinking that it might be the root cause) it usually occurs only when the speed is 80-85 mph

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 80 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I haven't tried anything else besides balancing

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nothing else

Balancing seems didn't help since wheels were pretty much balanced (just a small weight on one wheel was added). I haven't tried road force balancing yet.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Vibration only occurs on speeds higher than 80 mph or something like that
