NEED HELP! Steering wheel's shakin!
i was drivin yesterday and i turned a very sharp curve around what... 10 or 15 Mph, i dont know but as i dove along i noticed the car wanted to go right all the time and every time i hit my breaks, i said s_h_i_t whats wrong? how far i drove like that? probably 3 or 5 miles, then i parked in a parking lot and checked my right front tire, it was flat! f_u_c_k! so i changed the tires and got my tire fixed, (a nail got into it), so they put it back on and good to go... as i was drivin 45 mph my steering wheel starts to shake like hell and its like the whole car, i stoped along side the road and checked my tire pressure and that f_u_c_K_er was on 40 psi, i lower it back to 30 which all of the 3 tires are within this pressure, back on the road and at 45 mph or 60 was normal, no shaking, i hit 80 - 100 and the steering wheel got worse shaking!
can you guys tell me whats wrong and what to do, do i have to balance the tire or somethin? thanks guys! [Razz]

Yeah, it sounds like your tire needs to be balanced; the one they fixed.

easy to correct, man

u need an alignment, get it done fast because if you don't it'll cause your tires to wear out a lot quicker

alignment or balance check to make sure the new tire is going the proper way as well when they installed your tires. some people install them with the trend going opposite direction.
