If you can feel it in your brake pedal, it is most likely the rotors are bad. if not check tires or front struts for the tire hopping.

I have a 2016 Kia Rio and I'm experiencing something very "funny". While driving the steering feels as though I'm driving on ice or wobbles.

Hey Sherry...Does the wobble get worse when you brake?..ok.. First, get your tires rotated and balanced...this will eliminate two possible issues... (bad tire or bad wheel) ..did this cure it??. yes..GOOD... - no..?... now if it gets worse when you brake, you need to get your front rotors turned and new brake pads...this will eliminate two more possible issues..(worn brake pads or warped rotors)....hopefully we have cured your problem.. if not.. its time for a QUALIFIED professional to look at your front wheel drive system..this is/could be a safety related issue!! Be safe.. please rate as helpful... thanks..

Getting ***** wobbles through the steering wheel. Also a bouncing bad shaking feel once loaded

check the steering for anything that is loose and also check the front tires for a broken belt in the tires. Does it happen when you apply the brakes or as you are driving down the road. If it happens when applying the brakes check the brakes for worn out brake pads. Hope this helps.

Front end vibration road virbrations at speed 70-80 on my 1998 BMW 528i. Can feel it i the steering wheels, at my feet. Also sometimes it applies during braking at a stoplight. Tires are brand new...

What about the shock absorbers? Including the struts?
Stiff shocks will often create flat spots on tires over a period of time. Were these replaced?

If you feel the pulsation in the wheel than its the front rotors that are likely warped. If you feel it in the seat than its the rear drums or rotors. If you don't feel it until you push on the brake pedal than it has to be in the brake system. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Bounce in van suspension or tires

Do you feel it at slow speed, like in the parking lot? If so, its a tire or wheel issue. At slow speed if the steering wheel wobbles, its in the front, if you feel it in your ****, its the rear. If its at high speed 40-50 it may be a balnce issue, have a shop that does a lot of tire work check it, stay out of chain stores. This should not be hard to find.

When i hit the brakes or go over 60 miles the wheels will start to shake

It sounds like you may have more than one problem here. First I would investigate Front End Alignment and ALL Steering/Suspension components for excessive wear and/or looseness. Second I would Inspect the Brake Rotors and Pads for uneven wear. Third I would check the Tires for uneven wear and balance. Many things can cause these symptoms: Worn out Ball Joints, defective Shock Absorbers/Struts. Worn out Tie Rod Ends, Idler Arm, even the Steering Gear Box can be part of the problem. Brake Rotors and Tires can be out of Balance with either one causing the problem over 60 MPH. I strongly suggest having your vehicle inspected by an ASE Certified Front End and Brake specialist immediately. It is very dangerous to drive a vehicle with these symptoms.

I have some either brake rotor or front wheel bearing issues? how do i tell the difference in a rotor issue or wheel bearing issue? i have some noise coming from my front drivers wheel, i took the pads off...

no recalls that I know of, but you can always call the dealer, give them the VIN number and they can tell you of any outstanding recalls.. if you have thep ads off in your hand an spin the wheel and you hear grinding noises, then I would say the bearing is bad.

You need to have the front end inspected for damaged steering components. Check your Tie Rod ends, A frame bushings and ball joints to make sure there isn't excessive wear or lose connections. If all of that is in good working order Drive down the road with a friend in the next lane over and have them look to see if either wheel in bouncing. If either wheel is bouncing you need to replace the struts. they are replaced in pairs, both sides. The front end will need to be aligned after you do this.

Pulsing sound and feel from wheels

Ok, if the wheel bearing assembly was installed incorrectly the wheel would wobble and you would have a disconcerting feeling in the steering wheel. The rotors have to be within factory specs to be turned safely. What I would do is have the rotors checked with a micrometer and replaced.

Thumping at front passenger wheel area

if the noise isassociated with "wheel speed" then it is in the rolling parts... axle hub bearing brake rotor caliper wheel or tires...if it goes away on right turns then you are unloading or separating the issue a hub /wheel bearing /axle issue is most likely...does your brake pedal pulse when you feel it..(riding the brake while driving)..does the steering wheel shimmy ?
