Ok well I notice that when I drive the steering wheel shakes or vibrates and I could hear grinding an rattling noise from the right front wheel espicially when turning. An also the faster I got the more it vibrates the car,so when I took the car to the tire shop to see if the rim was on good or if any nuts were coming loose. I notice that you can shake the wheel so I dont know if the tie rod needs to be tighten or if it is the wheel hub bearings gone but I know the wheel wobbles when you spin it, also I notice that it is even causing the brake caliber to wear down the rotor very fast because I can see the imprints. Does anyone can be able tell me the problem or have any solutions an thanks in advance God bless.

Smiley, are you serious? You said that you can see and feel a loose in your wheel when shaking it! What is the worst that can happen? Your wheel will fell off during a turn and you will loose the control of the car and imagine the rest...

Your life depends on it, get it fixed ASAP!

Electrical glitches, sounds when going over bump, cracked windows etc can wait! Wheels, brakes, airbag... CANT!

Smiley, do you still have those 20s on your CTS that are in your photo album? if so, what is the offset of your wheels? and do you have hubcentric rings on there as well?

I have a next question I notice my Dic functions stop showing up on my nav screen for example like if i open the door, or even low fuel , trunk open, etc did I disable it in some way because I want it back to displaying those functions. If any one has any ideas let me know, I have the bose nav system.
