Question about Mercedes S-class S500 S55 S430 Exterior Stainless Steel Chrome Pillar Posts Trim Set 2000 2001 2002
When driving at 70 to 75 MPH, right rear wheel starts to vibrate and right rear brake caliper and rotor gets hot and smokes. And there is increased tire wear on that tire only. nothing that i can see or feel is loose. when i stop to check and then drive off again there is no vibration and the brakes stay cool. this ones got me stumpped.
Sounds like rear wheels bearings are failing, allowing the rotor to make contact with the brake pads. Remove the brake pads and caliper, and check for wheel bearing play. The caliper and pads can mask a bearing problem, by keeping the play down to a minimum. until higher speeds are reached. It is a dangerous situation, with a potential for a serious auto accident.

You have a serious problem. Tire is going to heat up and blow. Have the wheel balanced and look for a dent in the rim or loose lug nuts. Don't wait, this is serious!
