    Hope someone can help, severe steering wheel wobble, worst at 60mph, had new caliper on n/s/r as it seized up, disc isnt warped, 2 new front tyres fitted at the weekend, 4 wheel alignment done 6 months ago, I haven't kerbed or damaged it. MOT only 7 months ago. all wheels now run free, so am stumped as to the cause, also no excess play on wheel bearings.
    Cant think of a plan G please help

    Sounds like the front wheel(s) out of balance, maybe a balance weight fell off?

    Glad it's fixed, bet you're glad you did not rip it to bits looking for the 'problem'!
