Check the pattern of the rear tires a broken belt will cause an obvious distortion in the tread pattern. sometimes you can wet a driveway and roll over the wet area and see the pattern left behind

    thanks for the reply If you are feel that i would suspect front toe to be out. It is possible for rear toe to be off too. The way to tell is a full four wheel alignment. This will show if a problem exists. Problems can come from bent suspension parts that sometimes can be fixed instead of replaced. You need a good seasoned tech and he will have no problem doing this. Hope this helps and good luck

At low speed have a wobbly feeling


Generally, low-speed wobbles are caused by defective tires.
Look at your tires' tread and run your hand over each tire. If you can see (or feel) the tread shift away from the normal pattern, it's likely the tire has a broken belt (most tires have a steel radial belt the wraps around the tire, which is buried underneath the tread) - occasionally they can separate from the tire, causing a terrible wobble-ley feeling. (Ever seen those strips of tread on the highway? that is the result of not having the problem fixed when first noticed).
It could also be other problems such as a loose front-end, the tire being out-of-balance, or your car wheels not being aligned properly.
If you're not comfortable checking yourself, I suggest having a mechanic or automotive technician take a look.

You didn't mention if you ever rotated the tires. I suggest you get them re-balanced and put the fronts on the rear. I recommend putting them front to back without crossing them. There's been an argument about that for many years and I still believe that crossing will cause belts to shift inside the tire and that can cause it to fail if you reverse the rolling rotation, especially if no rotation has been done for a long time. (rotate about once a year) It may also be a good idea to replace your front shock absorbers. Unless you live somewhere it gets very hot, I'd also run your tire pressure at 35psi. If you normally run it lower, it may feel a bit hard at first but it's easy to get used to and the tires will last longer.

Steering wheel moves a little from side to side at low speed


Possibly a broken steel belt in your tire. I would recommend taking in to a reliable tire store.

2001 Jeep wrangler, at 45-50 mph, the front end and steering wheel shakes real bad.


I would start by first making sure you dont have a bent rim. Check the tires for any bubbles in the sidewall or any deformation in the tire as this would suggest a broken cord inside the tire. If that checks out, get the tires balanced and see if that solves the problem.

I have a 2002 jeep wrangler that seems to start shaking at 60mph below or over ok. It is not major but noticeable. Where do I start looking? Thanks Dan


Grab hold off the prop-shaft to see if it is quite solid, it could be a worn UJ. Check the balance weight on the same shaft to ensure it hasn't slipped forward or backwards on the shaft.
Then get wheels checked, they could need re-balancing.
