: Arizona Mechanic, rear end vibration

06-17-13, 07:53 PM
I'm starting to have a vibration by the right rear tire when I go above 68 mph. Any ideas on what that could be? Also for the Phoenix, Az drivers do you have any recommendations on a good trustworthy mechanic? The regular guy I would go to says the cars to old for him to work on it.

Put the spare on an see it that makes a difference.. could have lost a weight or broke a belt...

yeah, sounds like the tire could be out of balance. That's probably the easiest thing to test for. Take it to a tire shop and have them balance it

A vibration at 68 or above sounds more like a faulty tire not balance. As mentioned either install the spare and drive it or swap a front tire for a rear and drive it.

I had the same symptoms once. It turned out the tire developed a small bulge in one spot. Replacing the tire fixed the problem.
