Q: Jerking when taking off sometimes

asked by on

Just before we bought it in 2015 the previous owner put a new transfer case and had the transmission rebulit, we've put new brakes all around and the front passenger side caliper came off while driving it and gouged the rim so I put the spare on and fixed the other tire but haven't put it on yet! The 3 tires have the same tread and depth but the spare is brand new!

My car has 190000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
