Steering wheel vibrations. Spider twin spark.

1997 Spider Twin spark. At the (correct?) 39 psi I get a lot of vibration through the steering wheel, unless the road is glass smooth. Less bad if I reduce to 36psi, but still there. Front wheels have been checked - no damage to rims. They've been balanced. Quite new Avon tyres.
ANyone got any ideas - or do they "all do that"??

Re: Steering wheel vibrations. Spider twin spark.

personally i would get all four wheels balanced and the tracking checked then take it from there...

Re: Steering wheel vibrations. Spider twin spark.

Watch out for the road surface too its not unusual for a new surface to have small undulations in which at pressures like 39lb feel like wheel balance issues.

I'd also check the suspension joints and take it for a motorway run and see what it does at different speeds.

If the wheels are true and properly balanced I suspect that if its worse with increased pressures and there is no difference at speed that you may be looking at steering/suspension play.
