If the Tire is shaking all the time check the tire rod ends, If it shakes when your braking especially at higher speeds check the run out on the Disk Brake could be warped, look at spring housing for strut

Why would my car shake no matter what rim and tire I use?

you don`t say if you had the wheel/tire balanced. you could have damaged the CV joint on that side causing a binding in the bearing.

Front left wheel shakes at highway speed

Could be that your tire is unbalanced, wheel bearing is starting to go out, rim is bent, uneven tire wear, or the spindle that the wheel bearings go around could be slightly bent

Wheel rims are bent

a bent rim besides not hold air will give u a vibration-shake while driving which at higher speed can cause damage to vehicle or can cause loss of control of vehicle if tires are in good shape look around for bone[junk]yards and can get rims probably cheaper than what a tubes can cost you ,

Front right tire is making a noise when it is moving it shakes need help

More than likely a broken belt in the tire, or a bent rim. switch the front tires around, if the problem moves to the left, you will know for sure it's the wheel and not the truck. Any tire repair shop can tell you if it's the tire or rim. Stock rims are cheaper to replace from junkyard than they are to have repaired.

The front drive train is wobbleing, i've tightened the nuts for my driver side tire and it appears that it was not the problem. In more detail, when the car gets up to 45 mph it starts to shake in the fwd...

Jack up the front and spin each of the front tires by hand, look at them from the front. I'm sure either you have a bad tire or a bent rim.
Bad tire- only the tread will move up/down or side to side.
Bent rim- the rim will move up/down with the tire.

The stering

I would check your front tires for any defects if there is none noticeable I would get a front end alignment. Most of the time you can tell if you need a alignment if your car pulls to either the right or left while driving. Hope this helps.

04 Nissan Quest Shaking while driving

Put on the spare tire and see if that helps. If it does, go to the tire store and use your hazard coverage for them to check your rim for being bent or your tire from having a bruised belt. The rim is your responsibility, the tire is the tire stores. An 04 should have spare rims in Salvage yards. You can go online for those if need be.

Front End Shake

The most common problem I see with this complaint is a bent rim or rims. So regardless if you balance the tires and rotate them, you will still have a vibration. I assume you have more than one bent rim because it still shakes even after rotation. You will have far more vibration if a bent rim is on the front. That is why people usually rotate a bent rim to the back.
