1. The wheels are not balanced. (Go for wheel balancing and alignment)

2. Check your brake system (pads etc)

Good luck.

This problem is caused by the front disk brake rotors being warped out of true, you must either replace them or have them machined true again on a machine called a brake disk/rotor lathe. it is very likely the shop will want to replace the front disk brake pads as well.

    this is not a tire balance problem if it only happens when the brakes are applied.

I have a vibration at 70 miles per hour


if the wheel alignment is faulty ( castor wobble ) at 70 mph there is no way that you can describe it as a vibration as it virtually rip the steering wheel out of your hands. If it is a torque converter problem then at around 3850-4025 rpm stationary there will be a vibration of the vehicle and engine The sort of vibration that you are experiencing at 70 mph will come from a drive line problem. If rear wheel drive then it could be faulty "U" joints, worn slip joint or failed rear engine mount
If front wheel drive it may be cv joints or bent drive shafts,wheel bearings or brake callipers not moving freely on the mounting bolts.

Vibration bad thirty miles per hour plus


Start by getting your tires balanced and the underside of your car inspected. Ask the technician to look at your brake rotors while the wheels are off. Deformed rotors can cause vibration, felt especially in the steering.
I wouldn't drive the vehicle unless absolutely necessary until the issue is checked. A severe vibration could lead to catostrophic failure of parts, which in turn could lead to a wreck.

Vibration at 70 MPH.


Warped or out-of balance brake rotor? Also keep in mind that loose rear differential trailing arms that allow the rear differential to squirm around can also cause steering wheel shake.

2005 Equinox has vibration through the steering wheel at 65 miles per hour.


check condition of front tire, also the balance of the fronts 65 is a common speed for tire vibration. do not overlook steering play(tie rods, ball joints) also bent wheel. any noise? could have wheel bearing issue. lots of places, like vip, pepboys, etc. will check front end for free hopeing to sell you a part. not bad deal because you do need "something" even if it is tires balanced.

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!

Vibrating proplem


Your car has front disc brakes, the disc's are running out of true, as u apply the brake this causes the steering wheel to shake, the higher the speed the more u feel this, the solution is to have the front brake disc's machined true again on a brake lathe or if they are to thin replace them.

Steering wheel vibrations


It could be worn starting parts, Not ballanced wheel, and broken or worn struts. Start with the wheel getting ballance and go from there if there was no problems before your got the new tires put on.
