    Question!!!! See if anybody can figure this problem out.

    I am so happy that I am able to find this vehicle in such great shape and well taken care of. Carfax is clean and NO issues. The question I have is this.

    I had the wheels balanced and everythig seemed to have check out perfect. When driving the car from 5-80 MPH it is smooth, but as soon as you hit 82 MPH the car starts to shake, basically it feels as though it is on and off and will shake until I lower speeds down to 80 MPH and under. Please help me with this concern.

    I took the car up to 82MPH and put car in neutral and still shaking.

    i had that happen to me at a different speed but i took it back to who did the balancing and had them check it again. They rebalanced the wheels and it fixed the problem. Might work for you too

    you could have a bent rim. it will balance out but when road force is applied you will get tire shake at high speeds. also check tire pressure and tread wear and if you get new tires put on your car do not do it on a rainy day because hack mechanics dont dry the rims and tires before mounting any water even a few drops will cause an inbalance

    Its the factory installed speed limiter...don't go over 81MPH...you'll shoot your eye out.
