My car has 151 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

Hello, thank you for writing in. The tire may be shaking for a number of reasons. The tire may be out of balance and need a weight added to it. This is less likely to show at such low speeds, but it is likely what the first technician was talking about. The issue can also be a bent wheel or a damaged tire. The second technician may have been talking about a broken lug nut. This rare, but lug nuts can break. This would cause similar issues, and is a definite safety issue. Our technicians would be happy to come look at your vehicle and discuss repairs with you. For more information on scheduling and prices, contact our service department.
