If you Drove at all with the tire extreamly low or flat you could have broken some of the steel belted cords in the tire.

I have a 2005 ram 1500 4x4.when i put it four wheel drive high it feels like its in low and back tire on driver side skids


There's something seriously wrong in the transfer case or controls. It seems the rear driveshaft is locked up, and the front wheels are driving. The driver's side rear tire is skidding because it's trying to turn backward - rear passenger rear tire is going forward and rear differential has no option but to turn the driver tire in reverse (driveshaft locked). DON'T TRY TO DRIVE IT. Get it checked out and fixed.

Steering wheel and tire issue


Have a front end suspension check done to eliminate any worm ball joints -shockies- worn suspension rubbers-- steering problems. If ok have a wheel alignment done and have the rear end aligned first as it affects the front alignment. The violent wobble is castor wobble and indicates negative castor possible from sagging suspension springs. The camber is out at that results in the car following every dip in the road. The camber has to work in conjunction with the toe-in measurement and if the 2 are not correct then you will have problems.

REAR passenger tire makes loud clunking and grinding noises when turning more than 30-45 degrees above 5-15 mph


I don`t think you have cv axles in the rear of that.My guess would be wheel bearings could be grinding. Donut spares are strickly to be used for short periods of time and not to be driven at any higher rates of speed. Some damage may have occurred during the actual incident when you had the flat initially.Damage to the rear axle itself,

I have a 2003 impala I just replaced my driver tier and it was balanced. And it is shaking bad over 30 stops when I go over 50 ??


DRIVE REAL SLOW LIKE 5 MPH ON FLAT GROUND. NO BUMPS PARKING LOT.LET GO OF THE STEERING WHEEL IF THE STEERING WHEEL ROCKS BACK AND FORTH. YOU HAVE A CORD SEPARATION IN A FRONT WHEEL IF YOU FEEL YOUR SET ROCKING. THEN ITS A REAR WHEEL. THE ONLY TO FIX A CORD SEPARATION IS TO REPLACE THE TIRE.

2005 Honda Odyssey TOURING models originally came with Michelin PAX run-flats and eliminated the traditional dough-nut spare. If your van no longer has run-flats (look at the tire size) then your van has already been De-PAX'd...count your lucky stars because PAX tires run about 300 a tire plus!!! If you have been De-PAX'd then you will need a donut spare (T135/80D17) this goes into the spare tire space located behind the 3rd row of seats. this Site has everything you will need for the spare http://www.hondapartworld.com/1534_SPARE-SHJ

Shake and shimmy in a 1997 Silverado. They replaced the pitman arm and steering arm yesterday and 2 wheel aliignment.


Sounds like you need another shop, Most of the items that would cause your problem should be found by the shop alignment tech. Some things to check, tires: mismatched size or type, separating belts. bent, warped or unbalanced wheels, steering box play (internal slop), loose steering box from frame, congealed fix a flat in one of the tires, worn out or broken shocks, loose wheel bearings, problem could be in the rear tires and felt through the seat. if shimmy is while braking , your rotors will need surfacing or replacing. Not a lot of info was provided. 2 wheel drive or 4, big tires or stock, how quickly did problem start... Good luck

T brakes after driving on a donut pare


I believe driving on the donut spare has nothing to do with the problem-it isn't all wheel drive option is it? You say you added brake fluid, how low was the level? If it is losing fluid, you might have a rusted brake line that is leaking. Any evidence of a leak under the van? It's possible the master brake cylinder is bad, but this seems to be a sudden start of the problem. Did the tire blow out or did you go out to find it flat in the morning? I believe this is a leaking brake line issue. It is possible that if the tire blew out while driving, or you hit something (like debris) in the road, it may have damaged a brake line. As I mentioned earlier, it could just be a rusted leaking brake line. If brake fluid leaked on the exhaust or any hot components, it would give off a 'chemical' smell ( or even have an odor if it just leaked out) Let me know what you find.

My boyfriend bought his jetta without a manual, he popped a tire 4 days ago and has been driving around on the donut. I wanna buy him new tires, but don't know what size to get


It is hard to say what size tire you need.First thing we need to know is the size of the rim or wheel you have on the car now.You can get this information from the side of the tire on the car.
The factory size : 15"-wheel
195/65R15 - 205/60R15 16"-wheel
205/55R16 - 215/50R16 17"-wheel
225/45R17 - 235/40R17 18"-wheel
225/40R18
