To check how tight the front end is, place a jack under the lower arm of each front tire( make sur the car is secure and won't roll) and lift so tires are free of ground. Grasp the tires and try to turn them left and right. There should be minnimal movement. Check the steering components to see where the slack is, if any. If the seeering is tight have the tires checked for balance.

Sounds like you have a wheel bearing problem. Jack up the front end so wheels are off the ground. put your hand on the spring on the strut then turn the wheel with the other hand. If the bearing is bad you will feel the vibration/rough spot in the spring. Noise will get louder or diminish when you peed up or slow down.

WOBBLY WHEEL ON A HONDA


sound like you have tire out of balance or possibley a bent rim. i would jack the passenger side up grabbed the tire and see if it wobbles, if not then you have something wrong with the tire i would also turn the tire and look to see if you see any metal on the inside of the tire and feel for large knots. these factors will make the vehicle ride really rough let me know how this works out for you..

I believe it's a tire noise. It was making a noise and so I had the tires rotated. Different road surfaces the louder the noise. Going slow I really can' hear it. Since the tires have been rotated now...


Have the hubs inspected and the tires balanced. The wheel/tire assembly out of balance will cause the over 60 mph wobble/ steering wheel shake or drone. When did this occur or has it been going on for a while now?
