I have reduced the air pressure in the two front tires. made a big difference. the cost is a slight decrease in fuel mileage. more tire wear???? worth it though.

Steering vibrates at any speed wheels have been balanced what could it be. when putin nuetral at at any speed the vibration stops .


Out of balance wheels, shifted belts on the tires, loose steering parts can cause a shimmy while driving. Also, if the rotors are warped and the pads are stuck on the slides it will give you a brake pulsation that can be felt constantly even when you're not on the brakes.

2003 Toyota Corolla Wheel Alignment


The specs are what the manufacturer recommends for the vehicle when it leaves the factory. However that means with the original tires and condition. The caster is not adjustable on a Corolla, so if the vehicle pulls even with the tires switched, there is a possibility there is damage to the strut or steering parts. However, before changing anything, check all tire pressures and make sure the brakes are in good condition. A brake that is not releasing properly will cause a pull to that side. Individual toe is rather meaningless - the total toe is what is measured. You have no king pins on a Toyota so you will not have KPI.

Vibe like mud tire installed- changes tires/ rims still there


wheel bearings dont have to be loose to be bad. if it sounds like you put mudders on your car it probably is a wheel bearing.

2009 Corolla steering problem


I had this "problem" but there wasn't anything wrong with the car - it was just my driving...
The steering is just sensitive and "sporty" - try driving with a much lighter hand - even one hand, lower on the wheel. I now find the steering great and its actually very responsive.
It took 3 visits to Toyota before someone finally explained this to me but it works. People kept explaining that it "drives like a Corolla" but couldn't tell me how to drive it better.
Mind you the car is still horrible on windy days but I don't have same issues in normal highway driving.
A year ago I was actually renting cars for road trips instead of driving my 09 Corolla S I was that freaked out about the steering but I'm now completely comfortable driving the car. I do have to warn everyone that drives my car on the highway though...they never believe me at first but always concede that I'm right and that a light hand makes a huge difference.

Steering wheel of my Toyota Corolla LE 2007 vivrates


Hello. A vibration in the steerign wheel indicates an issue with the front tires. They are either out of balance, and would need to be rebalanced, or it is possible (although remotely) that the tire(s) may be compromised (after hitting a pothole), the belts in the tire may be corrupted. What I would suggest is to take the car to a reputable tire place, and get the balance checked. While the tire is on the balancer, the Tech will be able to see if the tire is out-of-round due to possible road damage. Probably just a tire balance problem. Thanks for choosing FixYA for assistance.

Did you have this problem before you got the tires? Sounds to me like the tires need to be balanced.
