"Turbulence" when coming to a stop?
 
Gents,

I recently had new tires put on my wrangler. About a day or two later I noticed a slight shake when I am almost to a complete stop. I knew I was due for brakes so I assumed thats what it was. Needless to say I went and put on new rotors and pads and............ still a slight shake.

It only happens when I am almost to a complete stop. Any ideas????

wheel out of balance? try rotation front to back and see if that helps.

ScottyWantsWrangler 12-10-2010 03:15 PM

Wouldnt shaking from the wheels being out of balance occur when I am moving at a decent speed?


I called the tire place, because I noticed it the same day i got the tires put on. They are insisting its a brake issue. Doesnt make sense!

dose it do it if you just let it come to a stop without the brakes ?

I will try this tonight. If it does... is it safe to assume that I should rotate the tires?

Well the tire place should check the balance.. I had that happen on new tires on the grand cherokee. they said bring it in.. sure enough out of balance. Could it other things.. lug nutz, caliper bolts, I would say start simple.. try a home rotation and see if that helps.. Then if if not, check all the bolts for the brakes and tires. You might have a bad new rotor too...

How long ago mileage wise did you have the new tires installed?

Does it pulse just in steering wheel, or also in the brake pedal?

I had some old tires that were hard to balance due to age, and they would vibrate only at a certain speed and when I got hard on the brakes from that speed. No pulse in the pedal though.

A pulsing in the pedal means your roters will need to be turned.

At least 100 - 200 miles ago.

I actually dont feel it at all in the steering wheel.. its more in the brake pedal.


I just put new rotors and pads in because of the pulse. Still doing it.

I was going to mention that you should always have the lugs retorqued after about 100 miles, but I read that you have just had brake work done, so nevermind. I'm just going back to my corner and sit quietly now.

mine does the same thing, I'm thinking its the tires not perfectly round or not perfectly on the rim. Its only noticeable at about 5mph or less

What tires did you get? I've had that happen with aggressive mud tires when they're new.

This.

What you describe is a classic side effect of running mud terrain tires. I experience it with my Goodyear MT/Rs, for example, though I have also felt it with numerous other brands of tires as well.

It's the lugs slapping the ground as you are coming to a stop.
