Automotive Myth: Shaking or Vibration is Caused by Wheel Alignment Issues

It’s a common misunderstanding that shaking or excessive vibration is caused by misalignment of wheels. We hear this all the time, even from auto repair shops and tire shops here in Temecula and Murrieta. Shaking is rarely caused by wheel alignment issues. It’s much more common that out-of-balance tires are the cause of vibration. It’s usually one or more of the tires that has gone out of balance. The vibration may be accompanied by an audible humming sound and both may change with the road surface and speed. The vibration usually starts small and gets more pronounced over time. Sometimes customers won’t realize there’s an issue for quite a while until it gradually becomes more noticeable. Vibration can also be caused by more serious issues like damaged wheel bearings or excessively worn front end parts in the steering or suspension, but this is much less common. [Read more…]
