Hi,
did it vibrate before AND after the new tires? If not, yes, have the tires re-balanced. Also, did you replace ALL 4 tires? If not, ensure all 4 are re-balanced.

Lift the back of your car.With a stable rest and with the two hind wheels hanging, run your car up to the speed where you experienced vibration. have someone take care of the throttle and shifting while you observe the transmission shaft. You may have an imbalanced shaft.

SOURCE: Car shaking and vibrating at 55 mph. and does it again at 65-70.

1.You could be right, check the flexdisk and the wheelhub, since you have already check wheel balance,
wheel alignment, and the steering wheel.
2. Have the following check as well;
a) steering linkage assembly for worn out joint parts.
b) propeller shaft (cross bearing, center bearing)
c) engine mount for defects.

Driving between 35-50 mile ph truck will start vibrating


There are many stages of vibration. The most common is in the steering and USUALLY a steering dampner will correct this. However, your description is not real defined and until the technician actually experiences it, it cannot be properly diagnosed

Could be bad unbalanced tires. If the noise changes when you turn/change lanes, then it is likely a wheel bearing.

Vibration in front end axles look good tried new tires still there


If you jack up 1 wheel off the ground and put the car in gear , you can watch the tire spin. You might see a bent rim. The shop that mounted the tires should have seen it and warned you though.

Car shaking and vibrating at 55 mph. and does it again at 65-70.


Hi:
Since your BMW 540 series is a rear wheel drive car, a common cause of that sort of vibration is often the U joints on your drive shaft. The vibration often only shows up and certain speeds.

It isn't a particularly expensive repair, but is something to have checked out!

2002 avalanche, 168,000 miles, vibration at 30 mph and 70 mph under load. Noticable at 30, very noticale at 70. about a 5 mph band at both speeds. Not noticable in remainder of speed band including over 70...


I'd guess you have a tire out of balance, it sets up a harmonic around 30 to 35 mph, and at twice that speed, or 70 mph. I suspect if you drove it at 120 to 140 mph, you'd find another one. Could also be a tire that has a belt that has failed.

How many miles on this set of tires, did you get a lifetime road balance on them? Hazard warranty? How soon before you need new tires. Need to take all of these into account, but need to correct the problem before you have a tire failure and a wreck.

I have front end vibration that is not caused by alignment. New tires on all four wheels but still have alot of front end vibration. Car is a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon. this information is helpful but not...


Hope I can help...but you have conflicting symptoms. IE... front end vibration but no shimmy in steering wheel?
Let me tell you this: If you feel the vibration when cruising(no brake & not accellerating) @ 60-70 mph; then 95% of the time it is in the tire/wheel/balance combination. (I know you said they were new but could still be out-of-round)

I'd start by having the new parts checked. Make sure your in balance, and have good tires. Then i'd check your bushings, especially in your trailing arm.
