Well it could be a bad rim or a drum such as throwing a weight off the drum. if you look at the drums there should be a spot where a balance weight used to be. if this is the case then replace drum.

My Xterra makes viberteting nose when I go over 60mph on both front wheels? and shimmies when I turn left. I go wheel bound and alignment couple months back.


Hey Jennifer, sounds like you may need some front suspension/steering components replaced..shaking, shimmying, ..is it getting harder to make it stay in a straight line?.. Find a QUALIFIED professional (OR TWO) and get a SECOND OPINION ALSO!!
Check the tires, wheels, front hubs, etc..the QUALIFIED Pro WILL do this!! Good luck..

sounds like you need to go have your tires balanced. go to your local tire store and ask them to balance your tires, it cost about 5 or 10 dollars a wheel.

If your tires were not properly balanced then it will cause that. Also, if your rotors are warped then icould cause this to happen. YOu would also notice it when braking if rotors are warped.

Front end shimmey on 2004 Maxima SE


It is possible that one of your new tires has what is called a slipped belt which is basically a faulty tire.

If they were able to successfully perform the front end alignment you can almost be sure that all of your ball joints, tie rod ends etc are ok as these really don't attribute to "shimmying" felt in the steering wheel.

The are several common causes of shaking felt in the steering wheel:
1. Out of balance wheel/tire combo
2. Slipped belt in a tire
3. Bent wheel

Your shop should be able to pinpoint the cause easily.

Take your car back to the shop that replaced your tires and tell them what you are experiencing. They can check your new tires again to make sure the belt on them did not slip.

Still have Shimmy at around 75 MPH. No slow speed shimmy or shimmy during braking. Just replaced the Front Tension Strut bushings with the Powerflex polyurethane ones. What else could be contributing...


Balance your wheels at a good shop. Have the tires checked for out of round/side wear. Are there any sidewall bubbles?

You could have a problem with the wheels themselves...but it is rare.
