Car was vibrating (shimmying quite badly) all over the road. I felt everyone could see it or hear it vibrating. I took it t Pep Boys and they evaluated it. They said all 4 tires were bad and a front wheel bearing was going to have to be replaced. Told me it would be around 900 bucks. I said I couldn't afford that. I can do 2 tires. Replace the back two(which were the worst)and keep it around 200. Ended up costing me 300 + tax but the tires were badly needed and I figured new ones for the back would last awhile. They showed be the old tires and the belts were showing the metal cord was protruding, They were about to give. So another 3 weeks went by and I replaced the front driver side tire for less than 50 bucks at a small private owner shop. Did it all in less than a half hour. Now the car hasn't been vibrating or anything. How do I know I need to replace the wheel bearing and it's not just the tires? A few weeks later the tensioner pulley broke and I ended up replacing the tensioner and pulley, serpentine belt and the water pump.
have the same problem?
