I bought this car 7 months ago and have had an issue with the front end. I feel a wobble or a shimmy and it comes through the steering wheel. I have replaced the tires twice and had the new tires roadforce balanced and they said tires and rims are fine now a shop is telling me tires are bad when I know they just cant tell me whats wrong. I could really use some help here.


Thank you,
Neal Cooke

You ever had the suspention alighend and examined?

Would be checking the wheel bearings and control arm busings right now and move on from there, bad strut mountings/bushigns coudl do it also.

Nissans of that year are very famous of having rims that easily bend. Also I would check the drive axles if they have been put in wrong or with force they can easily bend, another fault with the maximas.

I would go to another shop and have the wheels looked at. I wouldnt put it past a bent rim.
