Hello,

I just recently got a rotation and balance on my vehicle. I found out bad shocks had caused cupping in my rear tires. They moved my bad tires to the front and put my good tires in the rear.

I was wondering if the bad tires is the cause for fairly strong vibrations. Vibrations are most noticable at mph below 15-20. I am afraid because I also feel the vibration in my brake and gas pedals. Will continue use of bad tires in the front affect the integrity of the rest of my vehicle.

I already got the rear shocks changed out but im still saving for two new tires. Im afraid the bad tires will hurt my car. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi michaelt817,

The tires cupping would cause the steering to vibrate at low speeds. Generally there should be no harm as the vibration is only occurring at low speeds

If however vibrations are felt at high speeds and is affected by the brakes, you need to get the brake rotors checked.
