Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes while driving at freeway speeds a shake develops that feels like a warped rotor--but is not a warped rotor. I think it is a bad wheel.

Have the dealership or a mechanic do a balance on the wheel. If they are able to balance it it may not be the wheel. Have them check it against factory spec to see if it is warped, a problem sometimes seen in aluminum wheels.

It must be warped. I've had the place where I get my tires specifically look at the wheels (they also sell wheels and have lots of equipment ). They found nothing. I did't mention any possible warp problem--maybe they have a different test. I'll call them. Steve

You did not state which wheel or axle you think it is coming from. I had a tire go bad that caused the same effect. The outside tread looked good, but I found the inside of the tire had the steel showing. Also a weak strut can cause this as it starts to bounce at high speeds. A spin ballance will determin a bent wheel.
