Q: Vibration from front tire.

asked by on January 19, 2016

I hear a vibration from under the hood. I think it might be the front driver's side tire.

Greetings. Out of balance tires can cause some pretty terrible vibrations. Wheel mounting, the steering system, and front suspension should all be inspected over by a certified mechanic for any looseness or weak components. A trained technician, like the ones at YourMechanic, will be able to pinpoint your concern.
