Because they last much longer. 20,000 miles compared to 80,000 miles. Just because of the materials they use in tires.

Left front tire wobbles any ideas on what it is i replaced the axle and now it wobbles

Two options to try first; tire is not on tight, or the ball joint is bad. Either is an easy and cheap fix. Try the tire first, make sure all the lug nuts are tight. If so, it is your ball joint. Imagine a ping pong ball with a screw sticking out of the bottom of it. That is the ball joint. jack up the car, try to wiggle the tire, if the ball joint has a lot of play that if definitely the problem. Not expensive to fix either. If the tire/wheel doesn't go back and forth (has a lot of play) you should take it to a mechanic to see if the tie rods are on correctly. Good Luck!

How to change wheel bearings on a 2004 chevy cavalier

There a bolt in bearing so they are pretty easy. Jack up the car, remove the tire/wheel, remove the caliper, remove the rotor, remove the axle nut, unplug ABS sensor if equipped, remove three bearing to knuckle bolts. remove the bearing.

Make sure you torque the axle nut to the proper spec after installing the new bearing. Failure to do so will cause the new bearing to prematurely fail. Also get a good quality bearing. The less expensive bearings are less expensive for a reason. You don't need the most expensive one but you want one from a good manufacturer.

I have problem mi 91 honda accord ex coupe has vibration when im driving 55 & up im replaced l/f axle,control arm & balance the tires

Is there vibration in steering wheel? Check for bent wheel then check axle...again. Remans are not always good and new ones are just a bit more expensive. Also, check the output shaft bearing for excess play. Also try rotating tires to confirm it's not there.

The car jutters when driving over 60km/hr

Posible problems , listed from cheapest to most expensive.

Tires out of ballance
Broken chord in a tire
Bent rim
Loose ( worn ) tie rod ends
Bent axle
Wheel bearings ( but not likely)

If you have the tools , and a good safe flat driveway , jack up 1 corner of the car , spin the tire by hand and watch if it spins true , or wobles. while your at it , firmly grab the tire , and try to wiggle it side to side , in and out , back and forth. Repeat process for each wheel. If everything seems ok , I would think about getting tires ballanced. Probly about $ 12 each.
General observation is that if you feel the shake in the steering wheel , front tires are the problem , If you feel it on your bottom , rear tires. Good luck with that.
If you want to skip the whole jacking up the car proceedure , go directly to the wheel ballancing , and ask the mechanic to keep an eye out for "wheel out of true" while they spin on the ballancer.

2006 toyota sienna

I have Toyota with TPMS so I have some experience... things that come to mind off-hand are:
- Low tire pressure
- Pressure sensor damaged during replacement of tires

Check the pressure on the tires.... if the pressure is good,then likely one or more of the pressure sensors were damaged by the shop who installed the tires, have them diagnose and replace it/them (at their expense!). Good luck.
