I have a 2000 chev silverado 4x4. Latley when I reach about 50km the front end starts to shake and I feel it in the stearing wheel. Any idea what it could be? This will probably be expensive right?:embarassed:

alignment issue caused by worn/broken suspension parts???? Have you checked the tires for balance? rims dented out of round from hititng potholes? Get it in and get it checked.

Best case scenerio would be a bad tire. Check them all because even a bad one on the back can feel like it is shaking the front. If that's not the problem you could be looking at big bucks.

Hit any big potholes recently?

I just put a brand new set of tires on it I had them installed and balanced

new tires can still have defects... check for broken belts, bulges and such.

check your lug nuts also

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with your tires........
The problem may also have to do with where you had them installed??? Take it back and have them look at it again.

If you have mag rims on your truck they have issues with comming loose and it is recomended that you get them re torued every 10 000 km... also if you had directional tires put on and one was put on backwards it will cause a bunch of problems.

I had the exact same problem with my vehicle after changing from winter tires back to my all season tires. They were supposed to have been balanced, but when I took it back, they said they weren't balanced properly.

If this was a few weeks ago id suggest checking the inner side of the wheel for ice build up, maybe a lodged stone ... this would throw everything uot of wack.

Hopefully it is a tire balance problem. If not, maybe the drive shaft needs balancing...not cheap.
