I have a '99 S420 which I recently noticed has a obvious side to side wobble(I think it's from the rear tires) while driving at low speeds which then becomes a fine tremor at high speed as I hold on to the steering wheel. Any suggestions or recommendations. R. Batista

check the tires, their probably worn, out of round, out of balance, these things would certainly cause the syptoms your car is having. good luck.

Thank you for your response. I'll let you know what the problem was once I bring it into the shop on Monday. R.Batista

It sounds like your tyres may be out of balance..they may have dropped their weights..... try getting them re-balanced.

You were right. The rear tires were worn out and needed to be replaced.
