I have a 99 acura tl. I hit a pot hole and now my passenger side front tire shakes. Ireplaced the tire and it didnt help. But I noticed my cv boot is ripped. I cant go over thirty with out it shaking real bad. Do you think it is my cv shaft itself.

CV shaft would not cause the shaking, unless it is the inner joint that is bad. Was the tire balanced?
Is the steering wheel off center now?

The tire is balanced. The steering is fine. It isnt really a shake it is more of a wabble and u can feel it coming from that side

Something had been damaged and you need to give it a through check. Check the wheel lug nut for proper torquing. Ensure the replacement tire is in good condition.
