Change wheels as follows: left front wheel between left rear wheel, and right front wheel between right rear wheel.
Then test the car on higway.
If the result will be the same, (steering not smooth), all 4 rims are bent. If not, only front rims before changing are bent!

Wolbel in left front wheel


Does the steering wheel shake side to side while driving it as well? this may be due to a separated tire or bent rim.

Flat tire


There are several causes of a flat:
You may have a puncture. If you've a large tub which can fit the tire, submerge it into the tub and look for bubbles (signifies the source of the leak). else you can pour water over the tire and look (closely) for signed of bubbles forming.
  1. You can patch it (which tire dealers frown upon since they'd recommend that you purchase another tire right away) if you're only using it for short trips, or
  2. you can do what dealers recommend and purchase new tires (they usually recommend purchasing in pairs of 2 or 4 to ensure even grip on both sides).
  3. if you're halfway during a trip, you may be interested in one of those tire foam products which temporarily seals the leak till your next repair
Or you may have driven over something hard (e.g. pot holes) and bent your rims. This may also cause tires to leak and eventually run flat. If that's the case, I wouldn't recommend bending it back unless the rims has sentimental value (assuming you're running OEM rims) - I'd say it's time for a new rim replacement (or even a set of new aftermarket rims) ;-)

Steering wheel trembling when driving at speed 60 to 80 km per hour.


Hello. Welcome to FixYa.

Steering wheel tremble, or shaking, can usually be attributed to the fornt tires being out of balance, or, the tires themselves may be out of round, or, a rim could be bent.

I would suggest that you take the vehicle to a tire shop, and get the front tires spun-balanced. During that procedure, the tech will see if the balance is incorrect, the rim is bent, or if the tire is out of round.

Even if you have 'new' tires, an internal issue inside the tire could be the culprit.

Your best course of action is to get it to a tire shop, and get the above items checked out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

My alignment never holds. seems to have bad memory steer. I have had this problow since day 1 and it now has 50k miles. going on 3rd set of tires due to bad cupping and chopping. Tires always are rotated


90% of cupping is caused by static or dynamic imbalances of the tire. Basically a good wheel balencing should cure that.
Incorrect Ride height usually causes reduced directional stability as well as camber caster problems with ball joints Steering knuckle may be bent this can cause memory steer. its hard to say without a visual inspection but these are the area I would focus on.

Grinding noise front end when slowing down result in cupping tires , dealer replaced tires 4 time an gave it a alinement 4 X car has 20,000 mile every 2,000 starts again


Do you have aftermarket rims? If the rims rub against an outer tie rod, it will destroy tires. Any kind of suspension modification can cause this also.
