Hi I have a 2000 Cadi Escalade

Customer: 2000 Cadi Escalade. Steering wheel shakes when hitting bumps at about 30 to 40 mph ?
JA: Many things can cause steering issues. Some simple, some complicated. Fortunately, the mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: I just did
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: I'm wanting to know what may be causing this problem ?
JA: Is there anything else the Mechanic should be aware of?
Customer: I have custom 23" rims on my cadi
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
