hey how are you

1- pull over next exit , check you tires , look at the rubber thread are they even or uneven run your hand across the top of tire, after it cools down:

2- check the wheel bearings for any movement try rocking the tire back and forth holding it from top

3- tires could be out of balance

4- any check engine light on, it is not a engine mechanical issue or a tire ,wheel bearing suspension issue , if you pull over and inspect be best

5- if you had an engine issue , I would think check engine light will come one on 2011 , anything prior happened to this ,did you hit a pot hole maybe and bent a wheel

Please let me know

Thank You
