98 Bonneville

Constant vibration; have had the tires replaced and balanced; also replaced front rotors. This vibration persists. A friend has the same problem with an Oldsmobile. What could be causing this vibration? Have had the wheels checked and they appear to be ok. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks. Franco...

Have you had the front end aligned? Did the old tires wear in a strange way. You could need new shocks/struts.

Bent rims, missing wheel weight(s), improper balance job, warped rotors (if it occurs during braking), bad wheel bearings, collision damage, overtightened lug nuts (causing rotor damage), etc, etc, etc, etc, .

Swap the tires front to back. If the problem doesn't go away, it's not likely wheel/tire related.

The Bonnevilles require a four wheel alignment. Even if your wheels are not "pulling" you may want to have that checked if it's been a while. Here in Louisiana there is a chain "Tire Kingdom" which has always performed a great job on alignment for my Bonneville.
