wheel vibration?

i recently had new tires put on and had an alignment the week after. Its about a month later and i'm noticing a vibration from low speeds that feels almost like the car is wobbling (like a bent rim?) but it seems to dissipate at higher speeds. The car pulls a tad to the right now as well. Could this be my balancing weights falling off or does it sound like a suspension issue?

did u hit a curb hard after alignment? or wash ur rims with hot water? hot water removes the weights on the rim i think. i would think if ur suspension had problems, the shop that did ur alignment should have told u something. maybe go back to the shop that installed ur tires first to have ur rims rebalanced

no i havent hit anything, or washed with warm water. They were just balanced i didnt think the weights could fall off so soon. i'll run past the shop (revscene sponsor) and see what they say.

It's not uncommon for a weight to fall off a short while after being installed. It shouldn't happen, but it does.

Did you have any hard stops on the new tires?

the tire(s) possibley may have a bold spot, since they are fairly new.

A few weeks ago when my tires were only about 1 week old, I almost smashed into someone pulling out suddenley infront of me, I slammed on my brakes and skid about 10 feet. Becuase of that I got a bold spot one my tires, not sure which ones (feels like both or one in the front). So if you can't figure out the problem, check your tires out.

Is the tire pressure exactly the same on all 4 tires - it's the first thing to check.

Check the torque on your wheel nuts too. I've seen way too many shops put on new tires and install the wheels but the wheel nuts were loose and not torqued properly. Does it wobble all the time or just off throttle? Also check your wheel bearings for any play.
