We have a shuddering problem in our 1994 Dodge Spirit when we reach speeds
of 75 to 85 kilometers per hour. On mechanic told us that it was a tire
problem and to replace the tires and have them balanced. We did and there
was no change. This type of diagnosis (hit and miss guesswork)is so
frustrating. I came across this website and after viewing it we thought we
would give it a shot. Does this problem sound familier to any one?
Rotating the tires front to rear would have helped a lot to find a bad tire.
If it's a tire, you'd feel the difference in the location of the bad tire.
A wheel and tire might balance beautifully but the tire could be slightly
out of round.
It might also be a that a wheel hit a curb causing a slightly bent wheel or
even a warped flange? They'd need to spin the wheel mounted on the car to
look for slight wobbling.
