Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

When you are doing around 60 to 70 mph or 100 Km/h, If you put the car in neutral and coast, do you know if you would still feel the vibration? Do you want to return back after you have been able to do this?

Also, what brand tires did you install and do you know if they were road force balanced?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i want from you what do you suspect? at least to minimize the optionsball joint? steering tie rod? sway bar bushing? linkage? etc....
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Maxiss is not a well known tire. Did you have the tires road forced balance?

Was the car aligned after the tires were done?

i have did tire balancing two times also aligned within last three months with no changei feel the vibration in steering also some time passenger seat will vibrate... driving the car like that for long trip is annoyingany other suggestion
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Road force balanced is much different than a regular tire balance. Road force can measure radial imperfections in the tires and help the technician to not only balance the tire, but place the tire on the rim so it has the least amount of road force. If you have a tire with high road force, you can balance it all you want and it would still shake a tire balance issue.

This is why I am asking about the road force balance.

no...middle east
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

You put down in your question that you are in the US.

If you are getting up to speed say around the 100km/h.. And you put the car into neutral and coast, do you still feel the shake on the wheel?
