Q: Tires shake

asked by on

My front tires shake when I drive.

Hello. There are a few components to consider in this situation. The steering system connects the steering wheel to the front wheels. The suspension system fastens the wheels and the body and the wheel and tire assemblies must be in good condition. A worn or loose tie rod end may cause some vibration traveling at highway speeds. Worn or faulted suspension components can cause abnormal tire wear which can drastically shorten the life of the tires. Have a technician inspect the tires for abnormal wear, as well as inspect the other systems. Tire balancing is a maintenance item and should be done with each tire rotation.
