2013 Dodge Dart shaking.

Asked by Aug 30, 2015 at 05:08 PM about the 2013 Dodge Dart SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just put new rims on my Dodge Dart but I didn't
change the size of the wheels or anything. Ever
since I got them put on my car shakes on the
interstate and vibrates when I hit 70mph but only
when I'm pressing the gas if I take my foot off the
gas it stops. What could this be?

Did you have the tires balanced ?

Yeah I did

Rotate the tires from front to back both sides then take for a ride and see if it takes care of problem or gets worse or does the same or even does a lot better or not as bad.

I've tried that already. It didn't help at all.

If it does not help or does not shake as bad you need to have the tires balanced again.

Unless rotating the tires from front to back took care of your problem.

No I've tried both of those things and they didnt Help

Well if you did not have this problem before changing out the rims you must have a really bad bent rim. Where is the shaking coming from the front or the back ? Can you feel the shaking in the steering wheel ?

Yeah it's bad in the steering wheel. I bought then brand new and checked them out before they put them on. It was done at the dealership I bought the car at.

Yeah that's your problem either they are not balancing the tires right or the rims you brought are bent really bad and they can not balance them correctly.

Put the OEM rims back on, you big dummy!!!

Don't call me dumb bro.

Did you ever get the problem fixed Jcarter2010? Because I have the EXACT same problem.

Me too same problem...any suggestions

I had to replace one tire after it was damaged. Car drove perfect before and slowly started to get a vibration in the steering after the new tire was installed. I checked the bolts and they were all fully torqued after 200 kms. So I loosened all the bolts for that tire. Tightened them up snug in the star pattern, then to 3/4 torque star pattern then full torque star pattern. All perfect now Some tire shops use an impact to tighten bolts fast and can actually put tire on slightly crooked. You don't even need to jack car up to correct it, just make sure you stop loosening when bolts turn free by hand.
