Vibration..... Wheels?

@ 95-105 KM/H I feel vibration at pedals and see the passenger seat shaking.

Anybody else?

Will visit dealer thursday for balance all wheels.

Cant speak for vibration in the pedals, but it is not uncommon at all for the passenger seat to shake a bit when unoccupied, Ive noticed that in many cars Ive owned (Honda, Subaru, Nissan).

Dealer did a new balance, didn't checked and only add mass to the wheels......
Will visit a specialist wheel shop for proper check the wheels and how they fit.
With one wheel is have one side 25 gram and outerside 75 gram, way to much I think.

Wow, that does look like a lot. Hit any potholes? Bent wheel maybe? What tires do the cars with the bigger 18" wheels get? US AWD Touring models with 16" wheels like mine get the Yokohama AVID S34FV. I've had good luck with the Yokohama Geolanders that came on my wife's old Subaru Forester and also on her new 2016 CX-5. Some other brands like Goodyear and Bridgestone I've have problems with them going out of balance as they wear. I've heard of similar issues with Continental tires, as well.

I assume air pressure is good, or you would have gotten a TPMS fault, unless the TPMS sensor isn't working correctly.

Pressure is oke, CX-3 does not have special sensors.
Did not hit anything, only 2000 km now.
Problem was from the start, but they said wheels should set within a few hundred km.

I have also had problems with vibrations from the wheels (215/50 x R18), my dealer "balanced" my wheels and just added more sticky weights to the rims.
So I went instead to a specialist who dismantled all four tires, gauged the rim and then remounted all the tires again because the machine could "remember" The data of the rim it self. It was much better and one of the rims was "relieved" of 45 grams!.
It's worth going to a specialist because the car is very sensitive to even the smallest imbalance.

Although I now have a specialist to balance my wheels (215 x50 R18 Toyo R40), I am still not satisfied, they still shaking in the range of about 120- 180 km per hour.
Toyo tires have good comfort aso, but they are not especially "round".
I can see that now Michelin has produced a tire in the right size, Michelin Primacy 3. They usually make good "round" tires, so it will be the next project.

I haven't been able to find a tire in 215/50R18 here at all, so I just purchased Continental TrueContact in 225/50R18 and have scheduled to install them on Thursday. These tires are rated some of the best, better than the Michelin, in terms of comfort and performance. And I'm hoping the slight increase in size helps with the ride comfort even more. The stock tires are garbage.

Toyo 215/50 tyres on my car's 18" rims. Thankfully no sign of wheel inbalance.

Today I fitted new tires on our car. The tires are Michelin Primacy 215 50 R18 92W. What a difference !! it's like night and day! quieter and soft comfortable ride, no vibrations which we had struggled so much with the original tires ... just happy!
