If it is not a separated tire, which I feel it's not, because it happens to my '01 Avalon, as well as many other models/years. Immediately after tire replacement, then of course an alignment should then be done. Additionally, I recently received, Oct 2010, a recall notice regarding the replacement of the Steering Column Upper Bracket. Please check to see if your model is included in the recall, as it is very important to have the repairs made, to avoid a possible crash.

What are the symptoms of a wheel on a car that is out of balance?

When a car wheel is out of balance it will cause the car to vibrate at certain speeds. You may (or may not) feel this in the steering wheel. Normally the vibration will not happen at all speeds. From a start as you go faster and faster it will begin at some speed and get worse and as you increase speed to some point, after wich as you go yet faster it will subside again. In my experience the vibration is worst somewhere between 40-60 MPH. If the vibration happens a low speeds it's not likely to be wheel balance. One way to determine if you have an out of balance tire is to let a friend drive behind and beside you. Tell him on your cell phone when the vibration becomes obvious. If the wheel is out of balance it will begin to bounce up and down rather than just roll smoothly on the ground.

How do you fix a shaking steering wheel?

You probably need to get your tires balanced. Or replaced. If the bias goes (steel belt breaks or shifts), the car will waddle at low speeds, and the steering wheel will shake at high speeds.

My car has a bad vibration when you get it up to 10 milesahour what could it be?

First....can you feel the vibration in the steering wheel? Does the vibration continue to get worse as you increase speed? There can be many different answers. I would check all wheels for loose lug nuts or loose wheel. Next, check your tires for roundness. If a steel belt shifts in a tire, it will wobble. This usually happens if you hit a pothole or curb. See if someone can follow you and look to see if a wheel is wobbling. If you can feel the vibration in the steering wheel or the steering wheel actually wobbles in your hands,you will need to check all steering components for looseness and replace as neccessary. There is no hard or fast answer for this question. If the lugs are all tight on the wheels, check to make sure your tires are properly balanced...although I've never seen this cause a problem at only 10 MPH. If the vibration appears at higher speeds (40+) and the lugs are tight, the wheels are balanced, it may simply be time to get a front wheel alignment.
