Questions on wheel vibration issues
I've been having some steering wheel vibration issues recently and tried to rule out everything it could be and was hoping I could get some ideas from you guys.
I'll try to make this short:
Replaced rear tires after a blowout and got a realignment after seeing unusual tire wear (camber was bad). Got alignment and balanced, Hyundai techs told me it was all good but front driver rim was damaged and needed repair. Got that repaired, and had everything re-balanced, still had vibration issues since front tires were worn badly due to initial bad alignment and rim damage.
I replaced the front tires, now have all 4 new tires and one repaired rim. Car drives better than before but still getting slight vibration issues at about 45+ mph and seems to go away after 75+ mph but it's hit and miss. Also, steering wheel is off center (tilts left to drive straight) and the car drifts to the right a bit.
While the front tires were being replaced I requested all tires to be balanced and was told the rear driver side rim had some damage (minimal?) to the inside since it couldn't really balance right but they couldn't tell exactly where. I plan on having that repaired and Hyundai said they would re-check alignment and steering wheel issue.
What I'm wondering is whether the rear rim being slightly damaged would cause the vibration issues or not? It's really nothing major according to what they could see but I want to eliminate all wheel/tire/balancing/alignment issues before I have the dealer really dig into the vibration issue.
BTW, from what I've read on other threads people say slight vibration can and will happen no matter what so what would be considered "normal" vibration?
Thanks for any help you all can provide.
