The Wife and I just finished a 6300 mile adventure in our "New" 2005 SLK350.
Still married.... While on the trip I had some vibration, stopped and had the wheels re-balanced. Helped alot and got us home. The front tires were cupped on the inside, and the new rears I had put on now have some serious weights on them.
Before the trip I had rear tires installed, and the fellow that put them on said one of the wheels was not running round, but that it balanced out,so I assume that is the one with alot of weights on it.
The fellow that rebalanced the wheels said they were all way out of balance. He had heard that the cupping could come from improper alignment and or worn Struts. I am going to buy a set of wheels from someone in the forum and replace the front tires, and hope for the best on the rears. Car has 49k on it now.
Any thoughts on strut replacement, alignment issues?
