There are several reasons why your wheels can become misaligned. Even normal use of your vehicle can cause misalignment in your wheels over time.

Here at Hwy 7 Service Center we will make sure to correctly diagnose any issue you and your vehicle may be experiencing.
Even an missing ounce is enough to cause a noticeable shake at higher speeds. It is possible your wheel assembly can be rebalanced with lead weights attached to the rims.
