Since the tires were just put on you should have the wheel balance checked along with the trueness of the wheels and tires. This covers about 95% of the problems.

Hi. Most likely it's a wheel balance issue. Take them back to where you purchased them and have them rebalanced. If that doesn't solve the problem, it may be either a tire issue, or the shop may be using the wrong balance. Basically, tires are balanced DYNAMICALLY, with weights on both the innermost and the outermost area of the wheel, or with a STATIC balance, which is usually just one weight placed at the area of the wheel where the average of the inner and outer imbalance occurs. Static is not a true balance and often causes vibrations. Because your car takes a special kind of clip-on weight in order to balance the tires dynamically, my bet is that the shop used a static balance.
If the rebalance doesn't solve the issue, e-mail me at roccopecu@yahoo.com and I'll tell you what the next steps are. Good luck and hope this helps!

When you get new tires put on your car, they have to be balanced. If you do not, your tires will simply be out of balance. No tire is perfectly round, and there will always be one point on a tire that is heavier than the rest of the tire, thus this causes a vibration. Balancing tires is as simple a taking you car into a tire service center such as Les Schwab, America tire co. , Firestone tires etc. and it only takes 30 min. If you got your tires at a dealership, take it your vehicle back to them, after all it was they're responsibility to do this in the first place. If you go your tires from Les Schwab, they will balance and rotate your tires for free. I do not know what a dealership or other tire service center will charge for balancing, sorry, but i cannot imagine they would charge more than $20.

Some time ago I got new tires put on my 2010 dodge ram 1500 and after that the truck kind of vibrated I figured just the tread off the tire so I ignored the vibrating. Now I currently have abs. Esp....


If it wasn't vibrating before the new tires and was fine then it has to be the tires maybe just one, or sounds like they didn't torque the lug nuts to the right specs, putting the rim out of alignment, but if they took the wheels off to rebalance then that rules that out. I would go to a different tire shop and have them check it out....Also on a long shot they bent something in the suspension when changing the tires, possible fell off the jack or something similar. Good luck

Strong front end vibration at speeds over 60 mph. Shocks, ball joints have been replaced and wheels aligned and balanced. Took it to a tire repair shop and they couldn't find problem. Any ideas on...


You need to have someone look at it that is experienced in NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness). Front end vibrations can be caused by many things. Each possibility needs to be systematically eliminated to find the cause. Someone who is experienced in this can eliminate several possibilities by simply driving the vehicle...Did the tire shop even bother to road test it? I'll bet not!

Sometimes INTERNAL tire problems can cause a vibration that cannot be found (or eliminated as a possibility) by putting the tires on a balance machine. To eliminate this as a possibility, rotate the tires front-to-rear one side at a time then drive the vehicle to see if the vibration changes or "moves". If it does, then the tire that just got rotated to the rear is the problem.

Also, the vehicle can be run on a lift to see if the vibration can be duplicated in the shop. Many times, if the vibration is being caused by a drive axle or CV joint, it can be located by running the vehicle on a lift this way. In the case of 4-wheel drive vehicles, it will be necessary to engage the front axles to get them spinning on the lift.

The entire steering and suspension system should be checked for looseness in the tie rods, stabilizer links and frame bushings, control arm bushings, etc. Any looseness in any of these parts can cause vibrations at certain speeds.

I have also seen vibrations that act similar to a tire being out of balance that occurs when the brake rotors loose a balancing weight on some vehicles. This may or may not apply to your vehicle, (yours may not have balance weights in the rotors) but this type of vibration can usually also be verified by running the vehicle on a lift.

Have your tires and wheels checked. Sometimes they throw a weight and then you get a vibration. Other times you can have a bad tire and catch it before it blows.

Maxima - terrible vibrations in low speed


A bad tire, a loose wheel, a loose tie rod end, a bent rim, (tire balance at higher speeds), a piece of rust or whatever caught between the rim and brake rotor, or between the brake rotor and hub. Have you done anything to it prior to this starting?

I had this issue and it was one of my winter tires about to blow out, showing signs of weakness.. hopefully this helps!

Problem with vibration feel it when driving


any way you feel vibrations travel in whicth speed?
if it is up then 90-100 kmh get your tires balanced ,(they put a piece of metal in them to not vibrate in high speed) if you have done this, see how is your alignment tires. if this have done see your arm steering , you have them problematic(losting fluid inside, or if you have hited something hard with your tires.
