Get an ALIGNMENT, should be around $75 from local service shops. Your tie rods, ball joints, control arm bushings, wheel bearings and sway bar links being worn out can all contribute to tires wearing uneven or more than usual. Having properly inflated tires is a big help too. Also have your tires rotated every 10,000 miles. Also have the wheels balanced.

00Linc ls tires P235-50R -17 running 40PSI LABEL IN DOOR SPEC 30PSI . Would like to no what to do don't want to damage tire.

because it is a low profile tire with a wide tread , the 30 psi is a recommended pressure for a standard size tire
however at 30 psi you will probably find that it will wear with an under inflated wear pattern and the 40 psi is used to sit the tread flat on the road
best talk with a good tire shop as they have experience and reports form a vast range of customers who talk about the pressures they run to get the best wear from the tires
the tires I run are standard and the recommended pressure is 32 psi but the make of tire actually runs best on 38 psi and that comes from the tire manufacturer

Car shaking under 35 mph

Probably has a bad tire on it. Take it to a local tire shop and have them check the tires for slipped belt or irregular tread wear.

My jeep is shaking at turns and high speeds

The most likely causes are tire(s) out of balance, defective tire(s) or irregular tire wear. Irregular tire wear is usually an effect of mechanical problems. Irregular wear can be caused by something as simple as improperly inflated tires to steering/suspension issues.

Why does my 2007 sienna van starts to shake when driving over 55 mph?

Have ur front tires balanced and visually check for irregular wear patterns on the tire. This sounds like a tire balance problem but if irregular wear patterns are present u may have front end parts that need replacing.

This blazer is two wheel drive, does it require a two wheej or four wheel alignment?

It doesn't really matter, cause if you don't have good wheel alignment on your tires it can cause a rough driver (on certain speed) and irregular tire wear. Go ahead and do wheel alignment on all wheels. Hope it helps and please don't forget to rate the answer, it helps me, thanks!

2004 Audi A8L, irregular tire wear. Outer blocks of tires are feathering. Rough when sliding hand over tire from front to rear, smooth from rear to front. 255-45/18 34psi cold. new Bridgestone Turanza...

Once the alignment is good just keep rotating at least every 6,000 miles. Aggressive tread designs on these cars have to be pampered or you will get the feathering

Humming or howling from the rear axel has two possible sources. One is a wheel bearing and the other is the tires. Look at the wear pattern on the tires. If they resemble a tractor tire with uneven edges, then it is possible that the tire is making the noise. When you use the term intermittant, do you mean only at certain speeds, or does the noise come and go?
