Hi, there are four possible cause of the loose tire namely you either have a bent rim, bad bearings, the wheel is loose or the ball joints are bad. You have to inspect it to know the possible cause

This could be very dangerous if it is a ball joint about to break. If you don't know how to check for this have a good front end shop check it immediately.

I feel unstable going at moderate speed around a corner. it doesnt feel like it hugs the road. is this because it is base GXE model?


in stability in corners can be from several reasons
The first is the quality of tires in use as all stability feelings are generated by the tire profile, tire pressure and side wall profile and the quality of the tire (for example a 195 -75 r15 tire will feel loose compared to a 195-25r15 tire which has small side wall dimension and so sits better in the corners )
Next is the condition of the shock absorber, worn out , old or not of good quality manufacturer ( shock absorbers are design to take the rebound out of springs and suspension movement and if they are of inferior quality or worn out , instead of allowing the body to roll slowly , it feels like it will fall over )
Next is the use of a stabilizer bar front and rear as this is what keeps the car feeling level on the road when cornering ( if the stabilizer bar is too thin in section it torques to easily and the movement of the center of gravity is not properly controlled and so the body leans too much instead of sitting flat)
Suspension parts , ball joints , struts , steering rod ends , bad rubbers all add to a bad feeling
another reason could be a wheel alignment or loose wheel bearings ( steering tends to dart and feel out of control when cornering)
Many cars are designed with "soft" suspension to enhance the driving experience but this type of suspension will give the feeling of uncertainty when cornering ( like being on a water filled mattress)
To get a cost of the suspension up grade you first have to know what is the reason for the bad feeling
I would suggest a full safety inspection by an accredited specialist suspension shop ( Pedders or the like ) and then a quote on the modifications that will improve drivability and cornering
a job done professionally will be a safe and legal job

Why is my front driver side tire wobble when i hit a bump


First, have the tire inspected before you do any expressway driving. you could have a damaged tire with a tread or internal ply separation. second, inspect the front shock absorbers, it sounds like the left front shock has failed and lost its hydraulic fluid. third have the front steering linkage and front suspension checked for worn or loose tie rods, idler arm, ball joints and stabilizer bar links. do this ASAP as you don't want to have the tire fail or any parts break while you are driving!

Driver side front tire


Could be a wheel bearing. Jack the car up and shake the tire. Look for a loose front end part.

My 2006 H3 has water leaking into drivers side floor


While H3 is parked on driveway, driver floor mat is removed, and steering turned all the way right to expose splash area, pressure hose the front left steering splash area behind left tire while another person feels with their hands to determine where water is entering. If the leak is beneath, it would only enter when you go through flooded area. When it rains, the water constantly splashes behind the tires, which is an area source for water to enter the driver area while the vehicle is in motion during rain condition. If you live in snow area, they use salt to keep roads clear of snow. Salty water is highly corrosive to exposed steel. In the summer or fall season before snow begins, you steam jet pressure clean the underside, then inspect for any area where undercoating had come off. Take primer spray paint and cover these exposed areas with at least 3 coats of primer paint, or rubber sealant spray.

Why does my 1998 plymouth breeze sound like my right tire is going to fall off when i turn the wheel to the right? and its only the front drivers side!


You could have a bad wheel bearing/hub assembly, loose tie rod (inner or outer), or a loose ball joint. If you raise the vehicle (with lift or jack), shake the wheel left and right and if it seems to have any loose motion not controlled by the steering wheel, it will be one of those i just listed. Shaking top to bottom is usually an indicator of a bad wheel bearing while side to side will be one of the others.
