Sounds like it needs the wheels balancing. I used Abbey motorsport, but not local to High Wycombe.
Whenever I've changed my wheels and tyres over, I've always used Adams and Page in Cressex industrial estate. They have low trolley jack for cars with clearance issues on the ramps.

I have just had my alignment done at Nissan HPC in Tunbridge Wells on a hunter machine.
It drives fantastic now but cost £200 inc Nissan tax but I am sure you can get it cheaper elsewhere just make sure it's a hunter system. and make sure they get all the readings as close to centre as possible.

yeh its just the steering wheel has a slight wobble , more really at higher speeds, it doesnt pull left or right , so do you reckon its just wheel balancing thats needed?

Yeah I think so, you'll normally feel it from about 70-80mph. Tracking and alignment are more to do with steering wheel angles and you'll feel the car being pulled around on different cambers etc.

that's tyres not alignment

only when the tyres went on did that start

its had a full aligmnent with the sus fit, don't take it anywhere they will mess it up

try putting the rears on the front

you feel it as its coming thro the steering wheel. on the rear you would not notice it

If it is the allignment, then you can take it down to Power Engineering in Uxbridge just of off the A40, or GarageD Watford to Julian Smith.

but as Robbie suggested, swap the tyres see what happens. And check the wear on the tyres and see if the are uneven in comparison to one another, if so, tracking might be an option.
