Several possiblities, lost a wheel balance weight, bent a wheel, or you may have belt separation on one of your tires. That is obvious if you see a bump or crooked tread line.

You need to inspect your front tyres for damages, you can start by changing front tyres with back, and test drive, if tyres look ok then have tyres balanced.

How do I check ball joints?


I would check wheel balance first, since it happens at a certain speed, if that's ok,You can jack up the front of the car and jiggle the front wheels, if there is any "play" ball joints could be it, or worn tie rod ends.

Have your Mechanic check the steering tie rod bushings, and linkage. Sometimes it's just an adjustment to the steering box play(located at the end of the steering wheel shaft), - easy to fix.

Vibrates terribly over 65 mph


sounds like you have a wheel alignment problem. Not enough castor set. Have the front end checked out for loose worn bits. If you have a steering shocky in the system it is probably shot and not doing the job of stabilising the steering. Remember if the springs are a bit flat IE the front end is a bit low then the whole steering geometery alters and negative castor results as what you have described

Vibration at 70 MPH.


Warped or out-of balance brake rotor? Also keep in mind that loose rear differential trailing arms that allow the rear differential to squirm around can also cause steering wheel shake.

When driving my car the steering wheel shakes


If the steering wheel starts to shake between 55-65 MPH then you need to balance the wheels. If it shakes when you press the brakes, your brake rotors are warped and need to be cut or replaced. If the steering wheel shakes at low speeds then it's possible one of your rims is bent or one of your tires is out of round. Leaving a car parked for a long time in snowy and icy roads will damage your tires, causing them to warp. Depending on which situation is causing your steering wheel to shake, have it looked at.

Hi, I have a 2003 Mazda Protege. Recently the Alignment was serviced since I noticed that the wheel was shaking anytime I went beyond 65 MPH. Since the Alignment has been fixed, the wheel does not shake as...


If the steering wheel shakes at 45 mph or better probably wheel balancing. Take it back to alignment shop and tell them the problem. If its balancing its approx $5.00 a wheel.

Car shaking and vibrating at 55 mph. and does it again at 65-70.


Hi:
Since your BMW 540 series is a rear wheel drive car, a common cause of that sort of vibration is often the U joints on your drive shaft. The vibration often only shows up and certain speeds.

It isn't a particularly expensive repair, but is something to have checked out!
