Tierod ends. Bad belt in a tire. If you have a bumpy brake pedal, a warped rotor has enougn play to bounce against pads. Also Hub bearings were known to fail after 35,000 miles.

For Hub bearings there may be a Service Bulletin, but your vehicle is going on 10 years old. Usually the side that shakes the most on a opposite curve is the problem side. As in left curve the outside right tire is spinning slightly faster, right side curve its the left side spinning faster.

sounds too much like a wheel imbalance, check all the wheel nuts are tight too (I know it sounds stupid but it has happened to me) some off-road tyres have a speed limit set to around 50mph.

Vibration at 70 MPH.


Warped or out-of balance brake rotor? Also keep in mind that loose rear differential trailing arms that allow the rear differential to squirm around can also cause steering wheel shake.

I cant find p175 80 r 13 tires for my reliant 1985 ..what do i do, they are making them as trailer tires now


I'd go with 185/70/13. Speedo will read 62 mph when doing 60 mph, but on that year it shouldn't affect anything else enough to be worried about it. Tire will be slightly wider, which will make steering feel a little more responsive, as in pay attention for first while when driving, it will feel like it turns a little quicker when steering wheel moved, so just pay attention a little more in beginning until your used to it, but most people won't even notice. Also make sure you get the proper feel if in snow/slush, or heavy rains, due to wider tire, may tend to hydroplane slightly more. Check with your installer, and they should be able to advise according to your driving conditions.

I have a vibration in the front drivetrain on my Sorento. the vibration starts at about 30-35 mph and gets loudest at about 65-70 mph. The weird thing is that teh Vibration and associated noise completely...


ball joints or bent rim. Does it click or thunk when turning? It may be tie rod as well. You can lift it up and try turning wheel by hand and shake it to see how much play there is.
Check the there is a weight on the rim. Every one is supposed to have one.!!!!
