    Default Civic problem

    I bought a 2005 model civic exi, I am facing a problem and I need a professional advice. Whenever my ride attains the 80 or 90 km/h speed, the steering wheel starts vibrating a bit and if I further increase the speed, the vibration also increases. And whenever I apply the brakes, the steering wheel vibrates even more. Someone recommended me to have the wheel alignment and wheel balancing, so I did but the problem is still there. Currently the car has 15'' alloy rims with tyre SINGA 205/60 R15 91
    Thanks in advance.

    vibration can be due to bent rim or outof round tire. vibration when applying brakes is most likely due to wraped front brake rotors.

    @gts is right as far as I can see. Where about in Lahore are you?
    Get your wheels checked. Any balancing bloke can tell you if there is some rim and/or tyre problem.
    For the brake, get your disc rotors, disc pads inspected by some qualified person, I'd say Honda folks. You would probably need to get it leveled by grinding (or what they call: tool).
    Honda Canal Motors do a very good job with the tool thingy. If you're gonna get id done by someone else, please make sure that the person knows what he's up to.

    visit evernew motors on queens road.
    They are most honest and reliable alignment and balancing workshop in this cruel world. I am their customer from last 10 years.
    Get ur car checked from there as soon as possible, or u'll end up ruinin ur suspension and brake pads.
