    Dear Friends,

    When i tried doing high speeds after installing the new alloys and found my car vibrating after 110 KMPH...
    I went back to the fellow from whom I purchased the Alloys and complained him, he said you gotta install hub rings to it... he said it will be fine if I will go for hub Rings in front 2 wheels... Installed'em...

    Now on last saturday I went to Baroda for some work and on the expressway I again tried to do high speeding....
    I again felt car started vibrating at 140 kmph and at 160 kmph it was scary,,,,,

    :confused: Anyone has any solution to this prob??? :anyone

    I have already got Balancing and alignment done... rectified few errors... But still it does vibrate at high speeds even after putting Hub rings in front 2 wheels...

    Any inputs from our highly honored and experienced senior TFIan to this problem faced by Ganges and Me ???

    Which brand of alloy?
    If alloy wheels are of any delhi made brand or duplicate brand,this problem may occur.

    Car accessory shop owners deceive customers by canvassing in the name of "Imoported Goods". Business of car accessory runned by selling 75% spurious & sub-standerd quality goods.

    Confirm that alloy are of 98 PCD. AURA of Hindalco , NEO are the reputed brands of alloy wheels.
    Get the wheel balanced at another tyre shop.
    Some time we have to do balancing for 2-3 times to achieve error-free balancing.

    If problem persist visit Tata ASS.

    you were naughty enough to change the stock alloys:dancing
    Think you should take it to some good alloy shop & get it checked again.
    Problem seems to be because of different alloys.

    1. Any addition, alteration esp. on vital parts like wheel, body, engine could cause some 'different feeling' on any vehicle by default, in most cases we may not feel it.

    2. Almost all passenger cars, except racing, custom made high priced ones, after 120kms vibration starts to some extend, because passenger cars are made for driving with speed limits, that is below 100kms.
    Compared to the many other cars I driven, Linea is much better, we feel very slight vibration after 120/ 130. It is natural, it is a passenger car.(I didnt drive Punto, but never heard vibration problem.)

    3. In your case the reason must be what bhai explained above. MOSTLY alignment and balancing are the cause, if used the right Alloys.

    Naughty, I got your pm.
    Yes, you will need Hub centric rings for any aftermarket alloys.
    From the pictures I see they are HRS and same design as that of Soccerfan. In that case you will need hub centric rings of the size 67.1-58.1mm.

    Also I have doubts about the influence of the spoiler/air dam, especially at speeds of 140-160, that too might cause stability issues if they are not designed properly.
