Why Is My Steering Wheel Shaking? 

Many drivers in the Dayton area visit our service department to ask “Why is my steering wheel shaking and how can I fix it?” While you might think that the issue lies within the wheel itself, a shaking steering wheel is often caused by improper wheel alignment. When your tires are unbalanced, you might feel vibrations from the steering wheel to the seats and even the entire vehicle! However, before you schedule that alignment, let’s go into a few other options that may be causing your shaking wheel.

Top 5 Reasons My Steering Wheel Shakes

When your steering wheel feels off, it’s a good idea to schedule your service appointment to get a professional’s diagnosis. However, we have compiled a list of the most common issues we see around Springfield:

  • Unbalanced wheels: Your tires are crucial to a smooth, safe drive. When the weight of your set is not distributed evenly, you might notice shaking or vibrating throughout the cabin—especially if you have a lighter suspension system. If the problem persists, you might even have issues with everything from shocks to struts—so don’t put off that appointment!
  • Misalignment: Your wheel alignment is another important factor in your vehicle’s performance. Have you recently hit a pothole or a curb in Huber Heights? This can throw off the alignment of your wheels. Compare the tread of each tire if you want a quick and easy way to check your alignment.
  • Bearing Issues: Your bearings need proper lubrication to work as intended and too much friction can cause your steering wheel to shake. Sometimes a quick cleaning of the area is all that’s needed, but sometimes the damage is too great and you’ll need the entire component replaced.
  • Brake Problems: Have you worried, “My steering wheel shakes before stopping”? You might be dealing with problems with the braking system. Anything from brake pads to shocks can be the issue, so you’ll need a professional’s opinion to diagnose the issue properly.
