Arrow Vibrations on highway above 130 KM/H or 80 Miles/H

Hi all,

New to the Commander almost 5 months.

I have a 2007 3.0 CRD at 87000KM (54000 Miles).

On the highway when I am at or above 130 km/h (80 miles/h) the commander starts making vibrations that you feel the car is not happy. When I reduce to 120 Km/h ( 74 miles/h) it is smooth again.

I will be going to service soon and just wanted to check if this is a known issue?

Your input is appreciated. Especially the diesel users.

This is most likely a tire or wheel issue. Maybe out of balance ?

All whells have been lately balaced acually and I changed 2 wheels with new ones last month. It is the same situation actually. The ride is a bit smoother but that's all.

I am using Goodyear HP All weather by the way.

Can you post a pic of your wheels ? I want to see if they are the ones that have to be balanced on a special machine. Many members here have had a problem like yours and it was because the wheels were not properly balanced.

Those are not the chrome clad wheels that require special balancing.

I did receive my 90000KM(49800miles) maintenance today.

I told about the vibration issue and they also said it is a balance problem.

After the maintenance and balance we went for a check ride and the problem was solved.

The tires were balanced by a Goodyear dealer 20 days ago but interestingly today the Jeep maintenance said the tires' balance was terrible before.

Interesting story isn't it ?

They must be balanced with a machine that uses "fingers" that fit in the lug holes. It will not balance and will damage the wheel if you use a machine that uses the center hole. The most common machine for correct balancing is the Hunter Road Force machine.
