    Generally tires need to be balanced or you could have an issue with the suspension

    Could be wheel balance, loose wheel bearings, bad drums/rotors, loose tie rod ends, worn steering rack, cords separating on tires. In my case, it was Old Struts. Like Old Crow, only you can't drink it..

    It could mean MANY things.

    The only thing it ALWAYS means is vibration from SOMEWHERE is being transmitted up the steering column.

    The source of the vibration can be the road, the tires, the suspension, or even the engine.

    The best place to START is having the tire balance and alignment checked.

    Note: While misalignment won't cause vibration, checking alignment will likely spot suspension issues that may cause vibration.

    wheels need balancing ..but if you have worn anti roll bar rubbers and track rod ends it can emphasise the affect

    It means you have a bad Tire or something in the Steering or Suspension System is Loose and allowing a wheel to shake. A Tire Shop will check it for free.

    it may mean your wheels are out of alignment or that there is a problem with your power steering, you should take it into a mechanic

      I had a '74 Pinto, had unibody damage, L F wheel at a 15 degree angle in at top. It shook like a Wet Dog. So dont say "misalignment can't cause vibes"
