Wheel may need balancing, small quick job at garage. As for loud engine noise and vibration......miss firing cylinder, engines mount loose but more like something to do with exhaust manifolds leaking.
If you do one wheel, do them all...balance that is.
Good to check all parts of the steering bushes etc for loose rods.
One more simple check is to look for holes in engine heat shields and sound proofing. ............and check all wheel nuts are tight !
It happened to me, back from brake pad change, drove car home and the vibration really got my attention....I checked everything, except wheel nuts. I couldn't believe it could happen... but the *%$£" mechanic hadn't done up the nuts proper......small things can cause big trouble. Good luck

Why is it swaying sideways a lot?


Check for loose or worn suspension components. My XJ8 became unstable when a rear tie rod became worn. To check jack up rear wheels. If you can rock either of them left and right that might be your problem.

Why would the shake follow the wheel/tire where ever I move it to?


Hi, I think you referred this a couple of weeks ago?
I suggested you change the tyre to another rim. You appear to have done that and it has not worked, Can I ask whether the damage to the rim was caused with that particular tyre on it? If it suffered a sever impact damage it is entirely possible that the integrity of the tyre has been compromised. The vibration may be due to internal/invisible damage.
You have eliminated all other possibilities, this, as sherlock holmes would have said, must be the fact.
Well done!
Replace the tyre

My montana shakes/vibrates up and down when speed passed 75 mph. It is ok below 60 mph


Most likely a tire/wheel balance issue. The weights that are used to balance the tires can sometimes fall off. Generally how far out of balance it is determines when and how bad it will shake. Unfortunately this is not fixable without a tire balancing machine, has to got to a tire shop.

Were the tires rotated or replaced recently? Most major tire shops will check the balance for you at little or no charge if you take it back to the shop where the work was done.

You can also try to identify the problem tire by rotating the front and rear tires one side at a time. For example, if the vibration is coming from the front, swap the front and rear passenger side tires and drive the vehicle again. If the vibration moves to the back it's most likely the (now) passenger side rear tire that's out of balance. If the is no change, try the driver's side tires.

Hope this helps!

more then likely could be an off balanced tire or a tierod end do a complete inspection of all your joints and look for bad spots in tires... even new tires can have bad knots in the bands

90km/hr and above creates a strong vibration from the rear. pls what could be the cause of this and pls what could be the solution. thanks.


Sounds like a tyre problem. Visually check rear tyres for tread depths and run your hands over the flat circumference of the tyre and feel for bulges or bumps. If ok then they probably require balancing, check to see if any of the lead weights have fell off recently!

Sounds like the wheel balance is out on the new tyres, if the rears are out of balance expect the car to shake, if the fronts are out expect the steering to shake.
Best thing is to take it back and have the balance checked. Also good idea to stay with the same make and type of tyres all round.

Chris
