Steering Wheel Vibration?
Hi I just upgraded from stock rims and tires to 17" Motegi MR7s on my 2003 GT. I have noticed at lower speeds (under 60mph) that the steering wheel hesitates when I turn the wheel. I am wondering if I need an alignment, or if with the larger rims my stock power steering is having a bit of trouble turning the wheel. Its no big deal, but I have noticed it and am looking for any suggestions. Thanks



Jeremy




Hope to see a lot of you at Modified Madness in PA.

have them re-check the balance. if the tires are out of blance then they will cause the car to vibrate.

Well I bought the rims with tires, and they came balanced. I can even see the stick weights on the inside of the rim. So I don't think its that. Also mine vibrates quite a bit after 60 also, and hesitates when I turn the wheel.

before 60 means balencing is off. above means either alignment, bad struts, or broken tire belts.


Where did my sig go? help me find it..........

My steering wheel has a slight vibration at exactly 80mph. My summer and winter wheels/tires are all balanced and I've had the car aligned several times.

I've just kinda gotten used to it. I can always tell when I'm doing 80 without even looking at the speedometer.
