Wheel Vibration

My front wheel vibrates at speed of 60 to 100km/hr but it is worst when i am braking. I went to the dealer today and they told me it that caliper was the problem and they rebuilt them but i still have to problem. Does any one have the same problem?

Wheel Wobble

What kind of wheels are on the car?

If aftermarket...sounds like you may need hubcentric rings

If stock...sounds like you need a proper balancing.

Let me know which of the above. Its usually a simple fix not involving rebuilding a caliper

i used to have aftermarket wheels for summer but now i do have oem wheels for winter. The vibration happened with aftermarket ones also with oem ones.
ANd dealer told me that it was a front caliper problem that's making vibration and to fix it they told me that i have to either change to a new one or rebulild them. TO save some costs, i decided to rebuild them. But once i got my car back with capliper rebuilt, vibration was not disappealed.

if it is worse during braking, then please check your rotors. it may be warped.
and if that is not the problem, then please check control arm and bushing.
