Why is My Steering Wheel Shaking?

Hands on a steering wheel

If you’re wondering, “Why is my steering wheel shaking,” it’s usually resulting from tire misalignment, but it could be several car issues. Tire misalignment causes the steering wheel and sometimes the whole car to shake. A shaking steering wheel creates unsafe driving conditions on Mehlville roads, so bring your car into our service center if my steering wheel shakes. You can schedule an appointment online or drop by our service center in St. Louis.


My Steering Wheel Shakes: Five Common Causes

There are several reasons why a steering wheel starts shaking, all of which will be checked by a service technician when you bring in your vehicle for service. Possible reasons for why is my steering wheel shaking include:

  • Unbalanced wheels: The weight placement of your vehicle can cause steering wheel shaking. This issue is most common with vehicles with lightweight suspensions. If you leave this issue unresolved, it can cause problems with your vehicle’s shocks and other components. Our service technicians can rebalance your wheels to fix your shaking steering wheel.
  • Misalignment: Like unbalanced wheels, misalignment can cause a shaking steering wheel caused by your tires’ irregular position. If you go over railroad tracks and potholes often, this is likely the cause of your problems. 
  • Bad bearings: If here’s damage under the hood or not enough lubrication to keep your car’s bearings working correctly, it will cause your steering wheel to shake while turning. Mehlville and Fenton drivers should get this potentially costly issue checked out as soon as possible.
  • Suspension issues: If there are loose or worn out car parts under the hood or elsewhere, this can damage the suspension and cause your steering wheel to shake.
  • Brake issues: If your steering wheel shakes when you press the brakes, then your brakes are most likely the cause of, “Why is my steering wheel shaking?” Replacing brake pads, discs, or shocks should fix the issue.
