SOURCE: Car tires wobble at low speeds

Rim may have a dent or a weel balance weight may have fallen off.

Have the balance checked before your tires develop abnormal wear.

SOURCE: VW touareg steering judder low speed left/right turn

Sounds like you have air in your steering system. I would start by looking for any leaks on your steering system like hose to fitting crimps, steering pump, etc. Check your steering fluid level to make sure it is full and also look for bubbles on the dip stick. If everything looks good, start the vehicle and turn the wheels all of the way to the left and then to the right. Do this while the vehicle is in park and repeat at least 5 times. This will work out any air in your steering system. If the problem persists then the power steering pump may need to be replaced.

SOURCE: After high speed driving, slow speed shudder

when it starts to shutter get the car up on a lift and spin the wheels and look and see if there is a wheel bubble.
if the brakes were done recently a binding brake pad can cause some of that.
hope this helps

Why are tires that have flat spots from sitting over a year not safe to drive on?


The vehicle has probably been stationary for over a year if there are flat spots. But flat spots do not make the vehicle completely unsafe to drive. So long as the tires are not flat you may drive it slowly; keep it under 60 km/h (40 mph) and buy some new tires. Once you hit that speed the vibration will remind you to keep it slow.

Why are tires that have flat spots from sitting over a year not safe to drive on?


Any imperfections or flat spots will be worked out after you drive a few miles to get some heat into them. Some tires even develop flat spots overnight. It's normal for pretty much all tires...Keep driving on them, may take 500 miles of easy driving...It may make you nuts listening to the noise until they round out after some driving...saailer

I have a 91 chevy c1500 with (350) and when im driving down the highway it feels like the rear end is jumping when im accelerating slowly, but when i accelerate more the jumping goes away. Any Answers?


That would be something a person needs to experience first hand.
Does it feel like it coule be bad shocks and the rear is bouncing. That might have also caused the tires to go a little out of round.
Or is it a vibration? Maybe the tires just need to be balanced. Out of balance tires/wheels will vibrate to a certain speed (say 55-65ish) and smooth out as the speed gets higher.

2004 avalanche..46k miles..was making a noise that sounded like something was warped ..abs would engage below 5 mph..took to repair shop and they replaced both front hubs..said the abs was fixed ..sensors...


Try rotating your tires from front to back. It may help with the noise. Get a front-end alignment which can also help with the noise by correcting a "rub" sound that originates from the 2 front tires fighting each other for control.

The place which replaced your bearings is probably correct. When you get bad bearings they do not always fail evenly across the 360 degree turning of the bearing race. If you imagine a donut with a flat spot representing your bearing- as the donut spins with the flat spot cause by a disintegrating roller, the tire is bolted to the donut. The tire is going to hit the pavement differently every rotation because of the play in the bearing is at that same spot.

This play will create small cups in the tire shape at the low spot transmitted by the bearing. When you replaced the bearing , the marks in your tire tread remained. These edges need to be worn off. Or some tire stores can Shave a tire, in an attempt to make it round again.

If you have a normal size spare, you can put the spare on the left front side of your vehicle and see if the noise goes away. If the rims are different on the spare, you can have everything remounted and pay for rebalancing and put the unused spare as a front tire. Then you know the spare is at least good as a spare, but noisy.

Will flat spots on my tires cause bouncing when braking at highway speeds


tires should not cause vibration while braking. This is typically a rotor out of round condition, that will result in machining, or replacement.Good luck...

Front end shakes alittle when driving over 40 till 75 tires are not the best could it be old out of round tires


Have the tires inspected and rebalanced. As tires wear, the points at which they first were unbalanced have now worn and other spots may throw a little shake at higher speeds. The tires should be balanced every 15,000 miles or at least checked. By that time you should be on you third tire rotation(every 5,000). This will also help pin point any trouble spots or potential failures in the tires, brakes, or suspension(since they should be looking while the tires are off). But don't assume they are telling you the truth. If they wont show you, it isn't true! Plus don't feel obligated to have it repaired there. Get a second opinion if that makes you feel more comfortable. You would with a doctor. Be the advocate for your car!

Bounce in van suspension or tires


Do you feel it at slow speed, like in the parking lot? If so, its a tire or wheel issue. At slow speed if the steering wheel wobbles, its in the front, if you feel it in your ****, its the rear. If its at high speed 40-50 it may be a balnce issue, have a shop that does a lot of tire work check it, stay out of chain stores. This should not be hard to find.

i want you to feel all 4 tires, feel for lots of flat spots. feel all the way around them. they might have flat spots on them. this will cause this noise. you neer to rotate your tires at 3,000 miles front to back. this will stop them from cupping out. thats what the tire store calls it. have your tires checked for balance when you rotate them. your tire with flat spots will make a good spare tire. switch the bad one to your spare to see if the noise gets changes
