SOURCE: shakes at high speeds

The shocks and or shock bushings worn and needs to be replaced. The steering components could be worn, tie rod ends, idler arm, try greasing the fittings and see if the high speed shakes goes away. Good luck and hope this helps.

What is the problem if the car viberates

There are several problems associated with vibration, the most common being tire problems. If your tires are not properly balanced or are improperly inflated you will get a vibration, especially at higher speeds. If the vibration lessens or stops at lower speed, this is the likely cause and the least expensive to fix. If your tires need balancing be sure to have them dynamically balanced. This method mounts the tires on a special machine which spins the wheel at highway speed and determines accurately where the balancing is needed. The least accurate balancing method (static balancing) is not very accurate and may not fix the problem.
If your car tends to pull to the left or right when you apply the brakes, the problem may be due the front end being out of alignment. You can have a mechanic check the alignment and make necessary adjustments for about $50.

Hm. I had an irritating vibration at highway speed with tires that came with my car. I had the balance checked and it was determined that there was an out of round tire. I replaced the tires, had them spin balanced, and the rims were perfect. After that, the vibration at highway speed went away.

Tires are the most common problem for vibration at various speeds.

Where did you buy your tires or have them spin balanced?

I got 2 used tires on the front. Now it vibrates like you are on a gravel road. The steering wheel also vibrates. It is a smooth ride til you reach 60 mph or more. Some people said it is bad tires and some...

Sounds like they did a lousy job at balancing them or did not balance them at all. This is where I would begin. It could be a faulty bad tire if the balance checks out.

Hi, I have a 2004 Toyota Corolla the steering wheel vibrates at any speed.Did wheel alignment but aint got better. Pls advise. Cheers, Anks

Vibration or a "shimmey" is an indication that the tires need to be balanced. This is not related to the wheel alignment you had done A poorly balanced tire will vibrate on its own, transferring the vibration all the way through the steering wheel. Have the tires balanced. If this doesn't fixy your issue, then the problem lies between the rotors (could have a warped rotor) and the rack and pinion. Best of luck on your problem.

Steering wheel & inside vibration issues

Yes...That's probably a 50 or 55 series tire which by the nature of it's short sidewall will give you a "stiff" ride as compared to a more typical 70 series. Verify that the vibration does not come only when you are braking or accelerating. If you vibrate only when cruising then 95%(unofficial stat) of the time it comes from the tire/wheel/balance assembly.
