Solution and advice:

  • The solution could be as simple as rebalancing your tires.
  • Visit your tire professional at the very first sign of vibration or "shimmy".
  • If rebalancing doesn't eliminate the vibration, have the alignment and/or suspension system components checked.
  • Tires should be balanced when they are mounted on wheels for the first time or if they have to be removed and remounted.
