are you sure its as bad as a rumble strip? that doesn't sound like a balancing issue... but you should get the rim replaced to rule it out atleast...


is the rim sitting flush on the hub?

if the there are no vibration on low speeds and only on speeds such as between 80-120 then you need hubcentric rings 100%.. i had tsw's and they certainly need hubcentric rings.

I had a similar vibration just after I bought my car. Replaced a new set of "Chinese rotors" with Zimmermans. Cure the vibration for me.
