What is wrong with a 1998 Dodge Neon front driver side tire that would make it wobble when you do over 30mph and the steering wheel is a little loose?

Jack the car up at that corner, grap the wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock and move it back and forth. This sounds like a tie rod problem. Spin the wheel and check for a bulge in the tire such as a shifted belt. maybe the tire is warped. it will cause the tire and steering wheel to shake. I'd get the wheel balanced ... have a quick look and see if any of the little metal things that are used in balancing are obviously missing/have fallen off etc. You should see a mark on the wheel rim where the little lead weight used to be. Not likely tire balance, that is typical of higher speed vibration. Grab the tire 12 and 6 o'clock check to see if you have play ! this is easier of coarse when the tire is in the air , it could be that your lock nut has back off on the spidle of the half shat , or your bearings in the hub are going out ! be carefull driving this neon !!! Good Luck ! I forgot one thing also check you tie rods to your rack and pinion ! Again Good Luck !

For a 30mph over Georgia speeding tickets there will be 4 points against your license if you are a Georgia driver. You may also have to pay the new Georgia superspeeder fine. That is not paid to the court but to the DMV and the court will not tell you about it. See the link below for more information on Georgia speeding tickets.

That depends on your average speed. If your average speed is 60mph, then a little over 2 hours. If your average speed is 30mph, then it's going to be a little over 4 hours.

Yes. In New York state a class M license is required if the top speed of motorcycle is great than 30mph, regardless of engine size. Motorcyles with a top speed of less than 30mph that are registered as class B or C vehicles can be operated with a class D license.
