Make sure your tire pressure is set. If it is low, or has a slow leak, it can dammage a wheel. Slow down, as there is no components you can add to solve this.

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.

Is there a way to keep my 04' PT Cruiser tires from deflating on a weekly basis? If not does anyone know what kind of rims I could buy with new tires that would stay inflated and not be the price of a used...

you can buy a can of goo like solution that you put in your tire and as you drive around it sets a seal, that should work,you could buy it at any automotive place, such as a walmart automotive section. if not, depending on the size of the tires you may be abled to buy a tube to put inside them.

I would advise you to leave both sides with 235 45 17 this tire size would provide you with better handling and improved comfort also tires wil be more protected of suffering damage in the sidewalls caused by bumps and potholes just remember to keep them inflated at 38 +/- 2 psi.

2008 cobalt has recently developed shimmy in front end at low speed..<45mph is problem alignment or something more serious??also, road noise which has always been somewhat loud has definitely increased.

Your cobalt should still be under warranty, so you should bring it back to the dealer. If you have done massive driving and your out of warranty, then il'd have to say that you may have a wheel bearing hub gone bad and needs to be replaced. Check the tire pressure first, tire condition and look for any signs if tire damage like tire belt separation. Tire belt separation is when the steel belt in the tires that keep the tire it's shape has broke and there is a flat spot causing the wheel shimmy. If your not sure,rotate the wheel by placing the front wheels to the rear and the rear to the front, making sure the tires are properly inflated to the recommended PSI. Good luck and start with checking the tire first.

Wheel stuck on hub won't come off.

That kind of thing happens a lot and I work in a auto-shop. The corrosion builds up on the hub and swells up in the middle of the rim. 1. Put all lugnuts back on, leave them half way off. 2.Keep kicking the tire from the backside until it pops off the hub. Don't worry, you can't damage the rim by kicking it yourself. (Unless your the incredible ) The lugnuts will keep the tire from falling on the brake components when it comes off the hub.

  2. Bent upper/lower A Arm: $250
Civics are popular vehicles, and many new and used parts can be had on eBay or your local Salvage. Unless you specify, and they are willing, most repair shops will only replace with new parts, because they will not warranty the used ones.
Your bill could easily reach the point of totalling the vehicle. It may be cheaper for you to purchase another vehicle. Get a free estimate at a mechanic and weigh your options.

Shaking wheels

It's something in your steering components or you tires. I've seen both. If your tires are pretty good, it could be your steering stablizer. It's like a shock asorber for you steering system. There also maybe some components wearing out in your steering system too though casuing the stablizer to wear out or unable to to asorb the shock from the bump.
