Your tire is shaking, now what?

SPONSORED

Your vehicle should drive smoothly and operate consistently on the streets you navigate. However, there may be times when your steering wheel vibrates, or you feel a shaking when you apply the brake.

The most common reason your car is shaking is related to tires. The good news is that these issues are easily corrected with the help of the experienced mechanics at Moore Tires.

There are several reasons your tires may be shaking.

  • When your tires are out of balance, the steering wheel will vibrate. Typically, this starts around 50 miles per hour and gets worse at 60 miles per hour.
  • Brake rotors can also be the cause of tire shaking. In this instance, the steering wheel will shake while braking.
  • If your tires are showing tread wear in an unusual way, you may also notice tire shaking. The common cause is a tire mounted improperly or improperly balanced. You may also notice a mark on the side of your tire.

A common way a tire can fall out of balance is by striking a curb. Hitting an object will shift the weight balance of the tire to where the tire struck the object. You can avoid tire shaking in the future by purchasing good quality tires, and having all tires carefully inspected when you bring your vehicle in for preventative maintenance services. Follow your manufacturer’s scheduled maintenance program to avoid these issues.

A vibrating tire or steering wheel impacts the handling of a vehicle and impairs drivability. The mechanics at Moore Tires will identify the correct source of the problem.
