So does mines. It vibrates like hell when I hit 75 MPH. The only solution I could think of is get an alignment and wheel balance.

If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.

alignment and wheel balance should do the trick

otherwise, turn ur rotor.

Do you have aftermarket rims? and if so did they come with hub rings and do you have them installed? Also an alignment will not fix a viberation in the steering wheel, you'll need a wheel balance

At high speed my steering wheel is fine as long as I keep it under around 3.5 RPM. Only when I Accelerate and go abover 3.5 RPM that's when the steering wheel vibrate a bit..just enough for me to feel it.

I ask this because I didn't feel this vibration before. I took my car in for cracking noise under the Hood and toyota dealership did this to my car : Bracket Deformed...repositioned rear trans mount/bracket... The cracking noise is gone, but now I can feel my steering wheel vibrate a bit at high RPM. Is this normal??

thank everybody,

kevin

Could be a bad rim. Happened to me when i was using ROHs. Vibration occurs when wheel weights cannot balance up the imperfection of the wheels. try throwing the front wheels to the rears. if the vibration goes away, you have a bad rim there.
