I just started to notice a shimmy when i hit 69-72 indicated mph. the steering wheel shakes a little. Im thinking wheel balancing? Probably since the warranty wouldnt cover it. Any thing else I should consider? '01 SLS 30k on it
Like KC said, probably balance but while they're doing it, they should check the tires too.
One extra point, sometimes a "standard" wheel balance won't eliminate the vibration totally. I would suggest a "road-force" balance. This is a relatively new type of wheel/tire balancing procedure that will also eliminate (or at least identify) vibrations caused by bent wheels and physically defective tires. The point being that a bent rim or tire with a flat spot or similar defect CAN be balanced on a standard wheel balancer, yet still yield a vibration on the road.
