Tire wobbles when driving? Check this explanation why it does that

While driving you start to slow down and it feels like a tire is loose and wobbling? That is caused by a broken steel belt in the tire. You will need to replace the tire ASAP!! The tires with broken belts expolde at high driving speeds which is very dangerous

Getting ***** wobbles through the steering wheel. Also a bouncing bad shaking feel once loaded


check the steering for anything that is loose and also check the front tires for a broken belt in the tires. Does it happen when you apply the brakes or as you are driving down the road. If it happens when applying the brakes check the brakes for worn out brake pads. Hope this helps.

I have a wobble in the rear of my voyager, and it gets worse after travelling a distance. What could be the problem?


Could be you have a bad steel belt on one of your rear tires. The belts in the tire are like embedded steel mesh. Sometimes they slip out of place on old tires. Could also be a loose lug nut or stripped out post that it screws onto. Hope that helps.

At low speed have a wobbly feeling


Generally, low-speed wobbles are caused by defective tires.
Look at your tires' tread and run your hand over each tire. If you can see (or feel) the tread shift away from the normal pattern, it's likely the tire has a broken belt (most tires have a steel radial belt the wraps around the tire, which is buried underneath the tread) - occasionally they can separate from the tire, causing a terrible wobble-ley feeling. (Ever seen those strips of tread on the highway? that is the result of not having the problem fixed when first noticed).
It could also be other problems such as a loose front-end, the tire being out-of-balance, or your car wheels not being aligned properly.
If you're not comfortable checking yourself, I suggest having a mechanic or automotive technician take a look.
