Wife's Escape started doing a little shaking, at higher speeds, you could just feel a little bit of vibration, in the steering wheel.
It progressed into a good bit of shaking in the steering wheel at any speed and pulling to the right.
When she informed me of this---last night.
I jacked him up and spun the wheel (in the past I have pushed a brick or something near the tire to compare a "wobble" to)
This time it was not necessary, I could see the left front tire bulging, 1/3 of the way around, belts broken within. Sorta more than a "Goose Egg", more on line with an Ostrich egg
I swapped it with the left rear wheel last night, and now have a slightly bouncy rear end. Just to get her by today, by helping the steering. She promised no more than the 12 mile round trip to work. Slowly.I hate installing that little spare tire!
Thank you for submitting your problem. Until just now, I had forgotten about her Bad Tire!
Must replace it, in the morning!
Just so I can maybe add something to aid you. Swap front tires, to the rear, one at a time, and see if you have a change in your shaking. This might verify a tire issue. Or not!
