Question about 2002 Pontiac Grand Am
When I go to slow down and step on my brakes the front end shimmies, is it the brakes? I also have 18" rims and low profile tires on my car, someone had told me that when u have those there are certain brakes or something is that true?
If you can feel it in the brake peddle when you push on it, then your brake rotors are warped. Putting new pads and rotors in will solve this. Is caused by braking too hard (driving really fast to a stop sign and stopping in the last few feet). I have heard a few times that some people upgrade to a better brake when they increase wheel size, but I do not think that is a problem in you case.
