Shakie hands

My steering wheel shakes when I drive past 70 mph. What are the things that do that? Bad wheel alignment? unbalanced tires? too much coffee?

Mine does the same exact thing!! When i drive past 60-65mph the wheel starts to shake like crazy. I found out that it's my rimz and stuff...because I have had 2 alignments and still shakes...i'm thinking about getting new rimz all together!

i had the exactly same problem.

i got a 4-wheel alignment...and my tires re-balanced

the problem got better

but it still shakes a LITTLE bit from 75mph to 80mph

i think it is because of my low-profile tires

you most likely need to balance your wheels (if you have aftermarket rims)

other than that the only other thing i could think of that is common is an alignment.

thinks it's more the tire balance than the alignment...

Yeah, it was the tire balance, they had to re-do all four. That's what I get from getting it from an internet site. When I first got the rims. They mounted 3 on for the driver's side and 1 for the passenger. Morons.

It could be a front end problem. In my toyota cressida sometimes the steering would shake violently. That turned out to be the break rudders clamping down on the wheels.
