I have a 2004 Lexus E330 that I cannot Keep the new Tires Balanced... the steering wheel keeps shaking. What can I do to stop the Steering wheel from shaking. and I have already had a wheel Alignment. tires rotated and balanced
If you have already taken it back to whomever put on the tires and did the wheel alignment so they can check it, you might take it somewhere else and have them check the front suspension. Also, make sure the tires you purchased are appropriate for your vehicle.

Could be several issues....... but most likely a bad rotor. Could also be a ty rod, control arm, bubble on the tire, etc. Take it to a reputable/certified mechanic and have*em take a look!

If you have not had your steering components inspected, you may need to have your rack and pinion, struts/shocks inspected also your wheel bearings. Any one or combination of these components may cause an excessive vibration.
Sometimes, a shake in the steering wheel is not coming from the tires. Do you have this problem when you apply the brakes? If yes, you need to have your brakes checked.
When you bring your car in to be checked, has the tech actually driven your car with you to feel what you are feeling? Next time you go in, have them drive with you.

Hello Debbie- There is a possibility that you may have a bent wheel, or the belts in one of the tires have separated from the carcass or casing. Alignment and balance will not correct either of these conditions. Have a competent technician test drive and inspect the vehicle. Hope this helps thanks Super Girls Auto

I would suggest that you take it back and have the wheel balance checked. If that comes out all right then have them look for a bent rim or suspension parts that may need to be replaced.
Don*t be afraid to take them out for a drive so that the technician can see the problem you*re having.

I would first suggest that you make sure it is a tire issue and not a steering or suspension problem. If it definitely comes down to the balancing, I would need to know if they are large rims with low profile tires. If this is the case, most likely the vehicle needs to go to the dealership for balancing.
