Steering Wheel Vibrates

Hi,

My steering wheel vibrates when driving at highway speeds. I had my winter tires put on roughly 3 weeks ago and I did not notice any vibration until today.

Should I get my tires balanced? I'm not sure if that's the problem though...

Probably wheel balancing. When they are balanced, you might also check for a bent rim, although I've had damaged wheels which could still be balanced satisfactorily if the tech knows his stuff.

Hey thanks Tom, apparently it was wheel balancing. Had them balanced today, apparently one side was off by 2 something (which was significant). They said they had to use a lot of weights.

Vibrations are gone now.
