Start with tire balance at Costco, or whatever is convenient for you. This is a simple issue until it is not. Don't rush into buying a bunch of snake oil solutions. If they can't balance, they will isolate the problem. And when it's time to buy tires, don't be cheap. Buy Michelin or Bridgestone. They outlast everything, depending on how sane you drive. Enjoy the ride!I have a 06 fx35 it rides and drives great but the only issue is the steering wheel shakes when I hit about 65 mph any idea what that could be???
The car rides and drives fine I went to the Nissan dealership today to have to tires rotated and oil changed the shaking isn’t as bad but you can still tell it’s there a littleWhen your steering wheel starts to shake at ~40MPH and gets progressively worse up to ~60MPH... and at faster speeds the shake diminishes slightly (sometimes); then this is a classic tire balance problem.
A) I would go to Sam's Club or Costco and let them re-balance it for $5/tire.
B) You can always rotate the front tires to the rear and see if that helps, but it's not the best way to deal with a out of balance tire. However, it is the best way to deal with a bent rim if that is your problem. I.e., butting the problem wheel on the rear may reduce or eliminate your steering wheel shake.
C) I personally think the best way to balance a tire is to use 9 oz of this "Equal" tire balancing beads. Just buy 3 (12oz) bags, which will give you 36 oz total; and then put 9 oz in each tire. Note: You only need 6-9oz for a car size tire. 12 oz is for a tire with more volume and our FX tire is not that tall. ...And with these "Equal" tire balancing beads, you never need to rebalance your tires again.
D) If the above procedures don't fix your problem, then you need to start looking at worn suspension parts. Note: It doesn't cost anything to go to Midas and have them inspect your suspension.
OP: How many miles do you have on your car? And do your steering "bounce" or drift on a bumpy road?
