Exclamation Wheels ''Shaking'' -> RESOLUTION in posts #22 & #30

My car is shaking when I reach a certain speed of 60mph after I go over that speed the shaking stops. I also have shaking when I brake as well and I heard thats a warped rotor. Please let me know what this could be. Axles, Rotors, wheel bearings, something like that.

when your breaking and it shakes..its cuz your rotors are warped. about your shaking at a certain speed, it could be a few things... it could be your axels. but 1st off, look at your rims. any bends? take the time and take the rims off the car so you can inspect the inner lip of the rims for bends. normally, it would be the front 2 rims that will cause shaking. this happened to my old honda accord. HTH

That's easy.

Shaking when braking is definitely warped rotors. Go to a shop and if you don't want to change pads that's fine, but you need your rotors cut. The shaking usually comes from the front (that's where most stress comes), so you can just do the front 2 first, and if it still shakes later a bit, do the rear ones. If you don't replace the pads, make sure they also sand those down to make them flat, but if they're in bad condition, I'd recommend replacing those too.

Shaking at certain speed is most likely unbalanced wheel/s. Go to a shop and have all your wheels balanced again. Maybe you replaced a tire without balancing, or maybe you rubbed a curb or something or just lost a rim weight. Also check tire pressure. These are the first things to do. If the shaking continues, it may be something with the suspension.

Well it's definetely not the rims because they are 2 months old plus I checked for bends and came up with nothing. The tires are also balanced so it's definetely something else. Can warped rotors cause shaking at a certain speed? I was planning on getting aftermarket drilled rotors anyway. So maybe axles or wheel bearings............hmmmmmmm

Judging by your avatar it seems you have aftermarket wheels, if your wheels don't have hub-centric rings or they do but it is the wrong size you have bent lug studs, i speak from prior experienced. take the wheel of and check, pretty easy to miss.

it was actually doing the same thing with my stock wheels. I just changed to the new rims on Friday. Trust me it's the same as before. Still shakes when braking and accelerating around 60mph then stops a little bit after that.

if your rotors are extremely warped, then maybe...
I'd start with the rotors work. That will take away your braking shake. If after then you still have other shaking, we can start thinking more.

What matiasneto said is very true, I didn't even think about that, but if you had the same exact shaking with OEM wheels that you know where balanced and in perfect shape, then it can't be hub centricity being off.

your link is not a link, try again. Whatever you plan to do, the first thing to do is either replace the front rotors and pads, or cut your existing rotors and even up the pads (or replace them).

I will buy the rotors this week and I will post an update if the shaking stopped or not. I hope all the shaking is gone after that. WHEN ROTORS ARE WARPED, IS IT VISIBLE AT ALL OR DO U HAVE TO FEEL FOR THE WARP?

You can't feel or see anything until you put the rotor on the machine and start to cut it. Then you will see the surface difference.

Peregrine, full of knowledge!

Since your saying it happens with your oem rims as well as aftermarket, i would say its a bent axle. if your car is under warrenty, throw the stockies back on and take it to the dealership. they "should" be able to tell you whats wrong. and with any luck, they will fix free of charge. i tell you to put the oem rims on, because then they cant blame the shaking on your aftermarket rims. Good Luck!

unfortunetely the car is not under warranty. The axles cost about $60-$70 each and I could probably put them on but I'm gonna change the rotors first and then see if it still shakes. If it still does I will change the axles.

I'd hold off with any axles work until all else is checked. Keep in mind guys, our cars are made in Japan, they're not the american made crap where you have to replace axles after few years. If you haven't hit anything that would cause severe damage I doubt you'd have problems with your axles.
Based on all above I'd check/correct everything in this order:

1. Check/correct tire pressure
2. Check/correct wheel balancing
3. Check/correct wheel hub centricity
4. Regardless of all above, cut/replace front rotors and even-up/replace front pads
5. If shaking still exists, do the same as in 4. above but on rear brakes.
6. If all above doesn't fix it, have a specialist shop check your suspension.
