    Mijn Hyundai Tucson heeft veel last van trillingen in het stuur (stuurwiel
    trilt tussen de 115 en 135 km/uur). Diverse keren balanceren hebben niet
    geholpen. Meer info via onderstaande link.

    Als je de oplossing hebt, graag deze even posten!

    It sounds like the classic wheel balance issue. Since you say road-forcing
    the tires changed the problem, I'd primarily look at the tires and wheels.
    And don't be fooled about the road forcing. Putting them on the machine
    and checking the road force doesn't really do anything. The only way to
    actually minimize (and this is very time consuming and likely to be
    expensive) is to:

    1. Drive the vehicle several miles/kilometers to be sure the tires are
    set properly.

    2. Use the matchmaker feature of the machine. This requires checking the
    road force of all tires, dismounting them, and checking the runout of all
    rims. The machine then instructs which tires to put on which rims, how to
    match the tire position to the rim to minimize vibration, and where to
    install the wheels on the vehicle to minimize vibration.

    Even this won't solve the vibration issue if the tire or wheel is too far
    out of balance/out of round. Start by checking the tires and wheels,
    especially the tires if the problem changed when the tires were changed.

    I have driven several 1000 km's with 3 different sets of tires and rims (2 x
    Hankook, 1 x Pirelli). With all posible variations of rims, tires and car
    positions I still have steering wheel vibrations (sometimes more, somtimes
    less, but never without...).
    All sets of tires haven been driven for more then 2000 km each
    This has been done where nescessary to match the tire position to the rim to
    minimize vibration (VRF < 4 kg). Changing wheel positions on the car does
    have effect, but doesn't solve the problem completely.

    Although it sounds like the classical wheel balancing issue, I still think
    it is a problem of the Tucson itself. Why is my Tucson so critical regarding
    the wheel balancing? If I test drive a demo car everything is OK.

    The driving of the vehicle several km needs to be dont *prior* to the road
    force matchmaking. I.e., if the technician gets in the parked vehicle and
    brings it in the shop without driving, the results may be

    It sounds like the shop did a decent job if they did the matchmaking. But
    the fact that it changes when the tires are serviced leads me to believe
    it's a wheel/tire issue. As to why your Tucson is so critical, I don't

    Furthermore, I'll never be able to compete my online diagnosis of this
    with someone who actually has the vehicle in their possession. Mostly, it
    sounds like the people servicing your vehicle are performing improper
    diagnosis and improper testing when repairs are complete. It's a pretty
    simple matter to retest the vehicle after repairs are complete to see if
    the vibration is still present. If so, then it logically follows that
    there are more repairs to be done.
