Q: When I had my car serviced which included tire rotation, the air pressure light comes on a lot and the car does not ride as smooth

asked by on

I am wondering if the lug nuts are tightened by hand with a wrench or if they are tightened with a power wrench and based on one or the other, does it effect the smoothness of the ride? There is a slight shimmy of the steering wheel at times also. When tires are rotated does this include balancing them before they are put back on the car? Thanks. Debbie Borkman
