That Shimmy Is Telling You Something | Tires

Have a Merced tire service and auto care expert take a look at your tires if you feel a bit of a shimmy when you drive.

Recently you’ve noticed a slight shimmy when your car gets up a bit of speed; even the relatively low speed needed to get your car around Merced.

The problem could be your tires, says “If your car develops a shimmy (a back-and-forth vibration, usually felt through the steering wheel) at a certain speed, it's possible that one of your tires has lost its balance weight.”

The solution is simple – have a Merced tire service expert, like those at Don’s Tire and Service, take a look and, if your tires are unbalanced, restore the balance. While you’re at it, you might also want to get your tires rotated. Doing so every 5,000 to 7,000 miles “will help ensure that all four tires wear at the same rate,” according to

The tire maintenance technicians at Don’s Tire can rotate your tires when they re-balance them. Don’s Tire has been the No. 1, trusted tire repair and tire service shop in Merced for more than 55 years. Don’s Tire sells all brands, sizes and style of tire to fit any driving need.
