Assuming the bolts that broke, broke while the vehicle was in motion,
the wheel is bent
when the broken bolts were at the bottom, there was twice as much leverage between the wheel edge and the other bolt, and nothing to restrain the near edge, it would bend like cardboard
replace the wheel

My front right tire wobbles on my 2000 chevy cavalier but my tire is new


It wobbles? like when your driving it vibrates and stuff. If so its not your tire. It could be anything. Loose lug nuts. Bad Hub assembly. Suspension. Brakes. or if it really is the tire. it might be out of round. or need to be rotated to the back of the vehicle

1989 dodge dynasty - rear driver side tire wobbles. Have replaced the bearings, but still not fixed. Any suggestions as to what might be wrong?


Assuming that you mean the wheel wobbles side to side when it turns, it could be a bent wheel flange - the part that holds the lug bolts on. If that is the case, you will need a new axle half. Has the car been skidded on the pavement or been run hard into a curb?

Check that the lug bolts are on tight and are the proper size.

My rear right side tire is wobbling on my cheverlote cavalier?


are the lug nuts tight?
If so you may want to remove the wheel to inspect more thoroughly as that is serious - you may have a possible broken lug bolt - hard to say more without more details.
: Possible bent rim?
Loose half shaft (depending on if front or rear?)
Bearing on the spindle could be shot if on the rear..
best regards

Whats wrong when my front end has a wobble in a 95 camaro


The first thing I would do is to jack up the car and inspect the lug nuts to make sure they are tight. Then spin the wheels by hand and look to see if the wheel is bent any. If the wheel is bent it will wobble. Next spin it again and make sure the tires don't have any broken belts in them. If you have broken belts it will look like the tire isn't perfectly round, and the tire will wobble while the wheel runs true. On some models that use old style lug nuts they can be installed backwards. If you have what are called acorn lug nuts you can only put them on one way. If you have the old type the angled surface goes in. If these are on backwards the wheel can wobble. If this all checks out you need to look at the steering components, you probably have some worn out parts. For most people the front end inspection should be done professionally. This is because it is beyond the capabilities of most DIY people.

I noticed when i had tightened the three remaining lug nuts that as I drove off the wheel was wobbling. Is this from remaining gaps between the wheel and something else or damaged parts?


2 missing lug nuts, especially if they are side by side, could cause some wobble while driving. I would not recomend driving with missing Lugs. The stress you put on the remaining 3 could end up being to great, and the tire could end up falling off the car while driving.

As far as what damage could be caused by driving with missing lugs goes....


Anyting in the suspension from the ball joints, to the hub & bearings, axel, tie riods, just about anything down there is not suposed to be move or jiggled in the fashion that it is being moved.

Get the new lug nuts on immeadiatly, take it for a drive, and come back and let me know how it feels. Once you have the lugs on and we can eliminate that as a possible reason for the wobble, we can go from there....

Good Luck.....
