I'd check your brake rotors. Also, check the bearings as well. Either one can cause these types of vibrations. I'd check the rotors for warping and peeling before checking the bearings as the bearings are more costly to replace.

If the rotors are fine, I'd have a mechanic inspect the wheel bearings and see if they are alright. It could be going bad and need replacing. Usually they can do this cheaply if the bearings are still intact. However, if the bearings let go and start tearing up the housings the pricing can really begin to skyrocket.

I hope these ideas help you out! :)

WHY DOES MY FRONT RIGHT TIRE SIDE VIBRATE ON MY 2004 YUKON


Tire vibration can be caused by a few things. Here's what to check:
1. Check the tire inflation. Make sure it's at the recommended pressure.
2. Have a local tire shop check your tire balance. If a tire is out of balance you'll notice the vibration at speeds above 50mph.
3.Wheel alignment. If the alignment is out, the tire will show uneven wear and can cause vibration also.
4. If a front wheel bearing is going out, it can cause vibration, but since your car is only 5-6 years old, this probably isn't the case.
Hope this helps you narrow it down.
Best of success!

When excelerate to 70 mph my steering wheel vibrates. What should I do?


This is very common. It can either be your tires need to be balanced. Or your car needs to be aligned at an alignment center. One or the other should stop the vibration.
