Well you could have a bent rim, a knot on the tire, the wheel could be loose. Also you might want to check the wheel bearings.

SOURCE: The truck is wobbling as we drive down the road.

First check the lug nuts, make sure there is no loose wheel in vehicle.
If the wheels are secure, then look for a deformed tire. Sometimes a steel belt inside the tire will delaminate from the rubber and cause a lump or bulge in the tire. It will nolonger be round.
There is no repair, just replace.

Tire wobbles when driving? Check this explanation why it does that


While driving you start to slow down and it feels like a tire is loose and wobbling? That is caused by a broken steel belt in the tire. You will need to replace the tire ASAP!! The tires with broken belts expolde at high driving speeds which is very dangerous

Why does it wobble?


Check your tires for busted belts in tread! you will notice a bubble in the tread if the belts have come apart! Next check your lugnuts to insure they are tight! If they are, next you should check for warped rotors (Disc brake)! With the description of a wobble at any speed, sounds more like bad tires though!!!

When driving down the road at a low speed the rear end wobbles. St higher speed it shakes.


One of your rear tires busted a steel belt in the tire. It usually causes a hump in the tire when this happens, causing the wobble

Driver side wheel shakes often. I changed brakes and rotors and problem continues. What is the problem.


I would call this 1 of 3 possible problems.....

This first could be a bad or unbalanced tire. Sometimes the multiply ties we use on cars separate between layers, this causes an un-natural bulge that can not always be seen, but certainly can be felt while driving. This is called ply separation. An unbalanced tire, which could be caused by a wheel weight falling off, or a shift in weight that could be cause by something like an impact break or the ply separation, would also cause a wobble that varies at different speeds. The best way to check it out without a shop visit, is to take the wheel off and just inspect it, make sure everything is smooth and even.

Secondly, a wheel bearing could cause a wobble as well. The self test for this is to jack the car up, leave the tire on and wiggle it. It should feel tight all the way around and not move up to down, or side to side. A way to test this unit while driving, which is not always accurate 100% but will give you a clue as to where to look first is drive in an area free from other traffic, when it starts to wobble, turn to both the left and right without touching the break. If the wobble goes away it is likely the cause.

Thirdly the ball joint could also cause a slight wobble. To check this, I usually jack the car up, do the same wobble test as described above, then remove the tire and inspect the joint. A good joint will have absolutely no tears in the boots. It should also feel solid at you try to move the other components that surround them.

Good Luck, we are here if you need anything further.
