Can a bent rim cause a wobble while driving?
Yes is can.
Things that might cause a pulley to wobble: The pulley is bent. The shaft the pulley is on is bent. The pulley is mounted crooked.
Swap rear tires from right to left, see if the wobble changes sides. If the wobble changed sides you have a bent rim or a bad tire. If the wobble didn't change sides you have a bent axle or hub.
Tire out of balance is the most likely cause. Can also be a bent wheel.
I would say the drve train would cause a vibration. A wobble could be from a bad tire, unbalanced tire, bent rim, bad tie rod joint.
cause you might not of put tighten the tire when you replaced it . or your rim is bent, did you hit a curb?
The steering joints and connections are worn and need replacing Actually, the most likely problem is the tires. They may just need balancing. Sometimes the belts in the tires separate which causes a wobble. high/low spots in tires also causes a wobble. A bent rim can cause a wobble. Excessive negative caster will cause a wobble (alignment issue). Steering joints (inner and outer tie rods will not cause a wobble)
Pretty much one reason. You have a bent rim. If it's just one, put the spare on and drive it. If it quit wobbling, replace the rim.
A bad tire with belt separation. Loose/worn steering joints. Bent rim. A warped rotor (if wobble happens while braking only).
bent wheels or a broken cord in a tire or a deformity in a tire.
Most likely it has unbalanced or bad tire(s). Bent wheel rims also can be the cause.
What would cause the rpm's to fluctuate while idling on a 2002 Nissan Xterra just replaced the timing belt stripped the teeth while driving and died?
A bent valve(s).
bad or lose tie rod ends or a bent rim
Do not drive a car with a bent control arm asthis will cause wear and tear on your suspension .
Bent wheel, tires out of balance, front end out of alignment, worn steering or suspension parts, bad shocks or struts, bent drive shaft, broken motor mount, or a combination of any of these.
Bent drive shaft... Wheels not balanced.. Tracking incorrect.... Power steering fault... Could be any one of these.
The front wheels of a car can wobble because the car's suspension is not in proper alignment. The wheels may also wobble if the rim is bent or if the tire is improperly installed
Bad tire? Bad wheel bearing? Bent wheel? Bent axle?
Many things can cause the steering wheel to shake when you are driving. However, the most common cause of steering wheel shaking is a bent wheel.
What can cause a tire to wobble other than wheel bearings axle and tire vehicle was in accident now has a slight wobble with a squeaking noise the squeaking goes away when brakes applied?
The wheel may be bent. Take the vehicle to a trusted tire shop and have them remove and test the wheel to see if it is bent. The squeaking noise sounds like the brake pads are worn out. You need to have this looked into for the safety of you and your family.
Normally this is caused by a tire out of balance or a bent wheel.
Tires out of balance, bent wheel, worn suspension or steering parts, bent driveshaft.
Is it the entire wheel and tire or just the tire? A bent wheel can be caused by sliding into something or by hitting an object. If a wheel has been bent there is a strong possibility that it has weakened and should be replaced. Weakened wheels can be dangerous.
I wouldn't say bad for your car however you may notice a wheel wobble when driving, if tis an alloy wheel get it checked incase the rim may have a hairline crack
(1)Bad tires, (2)front end alignment, (3)bent drive shaft are the most common reasons for vibration.
It can cause a lot of extra stresses on the suspension and steering linkage.
Bad bearing is one problem. A bent rim can do that. Or, of you have ever been in any situation that would cause the frame to bend; a wreck, driving into a ditch, hitting a curb too hard, all of these things can cause this. You can fix any of the above except frame damage. Once frame damage occurrs, its almost impossible to fix, unless you want to take the car apart back down to… Read More
becouse of bent rim or a bad spot in your tire .
Unbalanced wheels or a bent track rod
What would cause a 02' Chevy Cavalier to wobble sometimes and other times not. Same speed in both cases and I have already replaced the wheels once because they were bent?
front drive shafts maybe
No...not typically. A bad PS Pump can cause a vibration while turning the wheels at slow speeds, like in a parking lot etc. Most likely a vibration while driving would be caused by, Out of Balance or Out of Round Tires / Bent Wheels or Axles / Bad Wheel Bearings / Bad CV Axle / Bad U-Joint or Damaged Driveline (RWD & AWD) Vehicles. These are the areas you should be checking first for "Vibration… Read More
yes a bent valve will not seat properly. can also wear the valve slide and ruin the head.will also cause backfiring and loss of power. sometimes a bent valve will breakthen fall down and punch a hole thru the piston or the side of the cylander bore so yes a bent valve can cause further damage to your engine
If the hub is not just loose it has probably been in an accident and is bent.
I believe that is a plugged PCV valve or PCV hose ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Also might want to check you head gasket. When I blew mine my dipstick was almost half out and bent.
It is not at all OK to drie with your front axle bent. While driving at high speeds, it may come loose and that ride might be your last.

More than likely your tires need balanced. or you have a cord busted in a tire. Bent rim could cause it, or sometimes even just some mud caked to the back of a rim could throw it out of balance
Worn tire? Tire and/or wheel out of balance? Bad wheel bearing? Bent axle?
Worn tires? Try putting them in different location (front to rear) Bent rim?
Most likely the rim is bent or the tire itself has a broken belt in it.
Numerous reasons possibly dirty fuel injectors, if its a 4 wheel drive could be different sized tires. It can also be a tire out of balance, bent wheel, or bent driveshaft.
IF the cam belt had gone while you was driving or started while broken then yes is would
No, if you get into another accident the frame will collapse further, and could cause damage to the occupants. Driving a vehicle with a bent frame is also harder to steer because it interferes with your alignment in most cases.
The knocking that you are describing reminds me of a stuck universal joint. A bent axle usually wears tires out very fast more than making noise.
This can be caused by the exhaust valve being either bent, worn or not seating properly. If this is the case then get this checked out A.S.A.P as this could cause severe damage.
I was driving against the curb on my left side for a second and now the edge of the plate rim is bent. I don't think anything is wrong with the bolts that secure it to the wheel, it's just the edge of the plate that is usually tucked underneath the tire... If that part is untucked and bent outward, will it cause any problems? And how can I get it fixed without paying too… Read More
Bent rim. You may rotate it to a rear wheel to reduce or eliminate wobble.
The possibilities are, a bad tire with belt separation (most likely), a bent rim or a bent axle. If it only wobbles when the brakes are applied you may have a warped brake rotor or brake drum (which ever applies).
Out of balance tire, tire with a slipped belt, bent rim, loose lug nuts, loose steering component, bent steering component, warped brake rotors, etc.
You hit the side of a 2ft mud bank on side of road and since then you get bad steering wobble the offside front tire has been replaced but you still get bad wobble it can be felt all over the car?
Possible bent tierod.Have your local garage check it out.
What are likely causes for rear rotor and wheel to wobble and make noise on a 2002 MB C230 Coupe and least expensive repair suggestions?
It is unlikely that it is how it is connected, but very likely you tapped a curb or such and bent the wheel or axle...once bent...noise would be a reasonable result along with the out of true wobble. Test by moving the wheel from one side to the other...if the wobble moves, it's the wheel, if it stays where it was, the wheel is good but the axle is bent. Replace the bent parts. Driving… Read More
