What is tire shake?
No joke. For the uninitiated, tire shake is simply a point at which there’s not enough tire speed, nor not enough tire speed.
Is it safe to drive with a wobbling tire?
The wobbling is most likely caused by a separated tire. Separated tires are a very serious safety issue, and must be dealt with immediately, since it’s just a matter of time before the tire blows. A tire failure of this type almost always causes damage to the vehicle. Do not put this off.
Do I need new tires if my car is shaking?
If the tires and wheels spin true and you still have a problem, then you should have a mechanic look at the vehicle. The most common cause of vehicle shakes at 50 mph or higher is tire balance. Again, transmission or drive lines can cause this, but the tires should be the first thing to have checked.
