My '06 DTS is currently suffering from a tire/wheel vibration between 55-65 mph. Feels like it's coming from the pass. side rear as the shake is not in the steering wheel but in the seat. I can watch the pass. front seat shake when I feel it. The car has four brand new Michelin Primacy MXV4's that have been Road Force balanced twice. It seems to help for a couple of weeks then starts creeping back into the picture. I've had these tires before and never a problem, I don't understand what's going on. 70, 75, 80, 85 mph smooth as glass. I've driven the car over 100mph and it's perfect. Just 55-65pmh.

I have this same problem on a 2011 dts - my mechanic says i keep bending the rims hitting potholes. Apparently the DTS rims are subject to easy bending, i am still searching for a solution. I have had them replaced twice under warranty and they refuse to do it again.

It may be the CV. I remember someone posting something about it recently. He was chasing down a shudder and no one could find it. It ended up being the axle.

---> If you care to try an unorthodox method . . .

Keep all Road Force Balance weights on wheel.

Remove wheel and 'bubble balance' :suspense: mark bubble balance weight.

:suspect: Reinstall & test.

Sounds far out but, I know a guy that had success with it.
