'98 aurora shimmies 60,296 miles on car

Have @ 20,000 miles on cooper tires, 1 was replaced - driver's rear - less then 200 miles ago with a tempra, tires spin balance & front end aligned.
Have been advised to start with 4 new tires to see if that solves the problem, if not go from there by our son.  Shimmy is more pronounced recently especially at highway speeds.  Car driven infrequently by little old lady who has to watch her apeed.

Most shimmies come from tire/wheel/balance combos. Before your dollars go down on 4 tires(assuming you have good tread), rotate tires & if there is a change you can figure out the offending unit

Shimmy of rear driver tire


Check for a shifted belt in that tire. You'll probably have to lift it and turn it to check for any wobbling. It could also be out of balance.
