Q: Back wheels shaking

asked by on

The back wheels in my car are shaking when I drive.

Hi there. This problem of a shaking wheel is due to a couple possible issues. First, you may be experiencing an issue with your wheel bearing. This is what keeps your wheels turning true without any extra side to side movement. Next, your vehicles rims may be out of balance causing the wheel to turn with hopping. A mechanic sent by YourMechanic can diagnose your car’s shaking issue promptly and accurately to ensure your car’s safety.
