i would check the brake rotors for warping if it gets worse when pressing the brakes
Tires out of balance
If your steering wheel is vibrating or jimmying while under normal driving conditions this indicates that your tire are out of balance, or have been worn incorrectly. You may have a bad alignment, bad control arm bushings, improper toe/chamber or the wrong tire compound. If your wheel vibrates while turning, then your power steering pump is failing, and needs refurbished or replaced immediately.
Tire out of balance, loose lug nuts, worn wheel bearing, or bent wheel.
check your tire balance or you might need an alignment
a rotation is where they switch your tires from front to back a tire balance is where they make sure the tire is the same weight all the way around alignment is where they make sure your steering is straight
Tire out of balance, bent wheel, or if it vibrates only when braking you have a warped rotor.
either your front end is not allighned properly. ot you have a tire out of balance..
Have the tires checked for being round. You can balance a square block but it won't roll smoothly.
Probably one or both of your front wheels are out of balance. Get them checked in garage or Tyre Centre.
If it only vibrates while moving, at any speed, it's probably a bent rim. If it only vibrates at highway speed it is a tire chrachteristic called "Radial First Harmonic" and might be improved with dynamic balancing. The tire shop needs to move weights on the rim. If it only vibrates at higher speeds, like 40 mph and above, it's probably the static balance and the tire shop needs to move weights on the rim. If it vibrates all the time, even when stopped, it's probably a four cylinder economy car and you are a cheap ass.
In my area a tire rotation and balance runs around $40In my area a tire rotation and balance runs around $40
First check tires for tread separation, out of balance, etc. If it's vibrating, you shouldn't be driving 80 MPH. Could also be drive line out of balance, which could indicate possible U-joint failure waiting to happen.
It sounds like your tires are out of balance. I would take it to a tire shop and get them balanced. If you have a Walmart nearby, and they have a shop, it's fairly cheap there. That should be your answer.ANS2:I agree. More than likely a tire balance and rotation will solve the vibration problem. Of course, ask them to inspect the tires for any defects.
An engine that vibrates at 3000 RPM has an issue with balance. The harmonic balancer or the crankshaft can become out of alignment.
There will be uneven wear that does not match the other tires. There can also be noise you will hear or bouncing that you can feel on the steering wheel that can alert you to the tire being out of balance. The best thing is to have it spun at a tire shop to check the rotation of the tire to correct the balance problem.
If your tires are in good shape, it's probably just tire balance. Low speed wobbles and shakes are normally bad tires, tread separations, just FYI.
Rotate and balance, then alignment.
loses the balance
When is the last time you did a balance and rotation. If tires are wearing from a 1/4 of life or less, just get new tires. You also could need an alignment, or tie rod ends and other bushings could be worn out. Make sure there is nothing bent and everything is greased and no grease sepage anywhere. If there is, this is a good sign that parts are worn and need to be replaced.
Have the wheels balanced I would check tire balance and check for warped rotors. Check tires for blisters and check the steering linkage for worn parts. Check the shocks and the engine to see if it is not firing all cylinders.
Tire balance or tire belt separation (bad tire) would be my guess. check your wheel balance
Normally this is caused by a tire out of balance or a bent wheel.
Most shaking in the steering wheel on ANY vehicle is caused by balance problems. The tire can be out of balance, the wheel can be bent or the axle (half-shaft) can be damaged and out of balance.
What make the steering wheel shake is the tires that need wheel balance.
