Most common cause is warped rotors.
This is probably due to worn brake rotors on the brakes, if there is no vibration when driving then this will be the cause.
It could, if the damage has caused a loose component or the alignment to be way off.if the sterring wheel is shaking while applying the brakes then most likey the brake roters need machining or replacing
Out of balance tire or lump in the tire? Or i had a u joint so worn out my van started shaking until i let off the accelerator
is this 4 wheel drive
you steering wheel starts shaking because you probably have warped roders your shaking will get worse at higher speeds and when pressing the brake
Does the steering wheel shake worse when you step on the brakes? If braking does not cause the steering wheel shaking you probably just have an out of balance wheel, a bent rim or a faulty tire.
If its shaking side to side could be a tire out of balance or maybe a mechanical issue (wheel bearing, alignment, etc). Probably not a safety issue, but it can wear the tires out prematurely which can be expensive. Warped brake rotors are the most likely cause if the steering wheel only shakes when applying the brakes.
This is usually a symptom of excessive run-out (warped) on front brake rotor or rotors.
Most likely a tire problem or a bent wheel/rim. There is a chance it is due to worn out components in the steering or front suspension.
