Yea the alloy itself came with the weights already on it, and a tyre already on the alloy so I assumed it was fully balanced, hence why I'm not holding out much hope that balancing fixes the problem :(

 

Anyway, I'll get it checked out and see what they say, then report back.

 

Any other ideas what it could be if the balancing doesn't work?

Thanks guys, the alloy I have at the moment actually came with some weights attached to it so I assumed it had been balanced already. Or are wheels not done on an individual basis?

Hi,

 

It's a full sized spare wheel, I just called it a space saver from force of habit. My bad.

 

Also, the incident happened on the way to work which is a 100 mile round trip every day. Try sourcing a new alloy in under a week and getting it delivered to your house and fitted also while working a 72 hour week including weekends. That was the earliest I could replace it.

 

And yes, going above 50mph was diagnostically viable to see if the problem increased with speed which to some extent it did, but I did it maybe 3 times maximum and probably only up to 56mph. The only other times I had to increase from 50mph was when I was being full beamed and honked at by lorry drivers behind me for going 50mph in the left lane of a motorway... despite being perfectly legal, on my way to work.

 

Any ideas anybody about what could actually be occurring with my wheel? I don't consider it dangerous as it hasn't affected my steering or ability to stop or hold the road etc, I'd just like to get a few opinions before I pay extensive amounts of money to investigate something which a user on these forums may have experienced before and have some advice about.
