    Had my wheel balancing done today,dont know what machine they used,one wheel took 105 gram weight the other 20gram,one wheel came off machine reading 005 the other 000.........still got the issue though,i get steering shake .....you can just feel the shaking starting at 57mph and at 60 i can see the steering shaking,id say its bad at 60 mph then it dont disappear until i hit 90-92 mph. 22" wheels i have........285 35 22's

    also car very slightly wonder towards left..........but ive got diff pattern tyres on all round all have 6-7mm of tread. thats another issue though.

    Could be possibly needing wheel alignment if it's never been done since tyre change. Worth a try.

    Have they tried swapping wheels front to back?

    Q7 eats front tyres regardless. NS front left on the outside especially.
