The tires on the OEM wheels are Toyo Extensa 225-45-17 94V are almost new.The suspension was checked and I also had a tower strut brace installed.

1 Answer

The tires and or wheels are the most likely problem a low speed shake is usually caused by a defective tire or bent rim. Balancing the tire will not correct a tire with a faulty belt in it. The only way to diagnose the faulty tire is to remove the tires/wheels from the car and note if the problem is gone. If you have one defective tire and they are all from te same batch you may have to remove all of the tires/wheels for the problem to go away. We typically would replace the tires and wheels with a set from a similar car and see if the problem is gone and the work to identify how many of he tires and or wheels are faulty. Just a note. Shake, shimmy or vibration are never effected by alignment. The three symptoms for wheel alignment are: improper tire wear, steering wheel off center, a drft or pull to one direction. Drifts or pulls are more often caused by faulty tires than alignment as well.
