Rotated the tires... now the car shakes!
Posted 23 September 2003 - 01:12 PM
Now... the car has a pretty serious shake. It used to shake on the freeway before, but now it's gotten slightly worse. Instead of a death-rattle at 75, it shakes at any speed above 50 (and most speeds below 50).
I've checked the air pressure in the tires, is there anything else anyone can think of?
PS. Another issue, most likely unrelated...
The tread on my front tires had very uneven wear. The outside of the tread was bald as can be, but the tread on the very inside was still good. Any ideas?

As for your rotation, you should rotate LF to LR and RF to RR with radial tires. If you have directional tires, it's a must.
The tire wear that you mention is pretty common with EA81s, hard cornering will increase the rate of outside wear.

a broken belt in one of the front tires
if you are serious about fixing this
jack each wheel off the ground
spin it and watch for irregularities
I am also behind Craig in his Lf - > Lr
I believe your method went out with bias ply tyres but I'm
brain dead so please pay no attention

Rotated tires... car shook like mad. Bought new tires, car still shook, but was acceptable (hey, it was an old car).
Sold car, bought newer car, have been driving that car for about a year now.
In fact, the car this thread was written over has been wrecked for almost a year now (by the people I sold it to).

In Retrospect, they MIGHT have been directional tires (but I doubt it) and I swapped them on backwards. Oh well, like I said, the car has long since been fixed, sold, then wrecked
