Tire Diagnosis

Tire Shimmy

The problem may be

Properly balanced tires contribute to driving comfort & long tire life. Tires that are out of balance can cause a vibration that can lead to driver fatigue, premature or uneven tire wear, & unnecessary wear & tear on your vehicle's suspension. Tires should be balanced when they are mounted on wheels for the first time or when they are remounted after being repaired.

Tires should be rebalanced at the first sign of vibration or "shimmy." If rebalancing doesn't eliminate the vibration, have the alignment and/or suspension system components checked. Proper alignment & balance contribute to even tire wear.


The problem may be

A vibration while driving indicates that there is a problem that needs attention. The tires, steering system, & suspension system should be checked IMMEDIATELY to help determine the possible cause of the vibration. If the vibration is not corrected, it could cause excessive tire & suspension wear. It could even be dangerous.
