Why Is My Steering Wheel Shaking?

2020 Porsche 911 Targa 4


It can be unsettling to find yourself calling up a service department in Charlotte and explaining, “My steering wheel shakes.” Don’t panic. Our Porsche service center has helped plenty of Matthews drivers with the same problem. We’ve put together a list below of the most likely reasons your steering wheel is shaking, like misalignment or worn brakes. Let’s take a closer look so you can start to determine why your steering wheel is shaking.

My Steering Wheel Shakes. What’s Causing It?

There are few things you want to feel during your Indian Trail commute. A shaking steering wheel is not one of them. If you’re wondering, “Why is my steering wheel shaking?”, read the handy guide below.

Why Is My Steering Wheel Shaking?

  • Unbalanced wheels: Improper weight distribution is easy to fix. Our tire experts can easily take care of that for you. But you’ll want to get your wheels balanced to avoid more costly repairs down the road.
  • Worn tires: One of your tires could have experienced damage or extremely uneven tread wear that can cause your steering wheel to shake.
  • Misalignment: If the tread on your tires has worn unevenly, this could be the problem. Fortunately, misalignment is easy to fix, as well.
  • Bad bearings: This is why most oil change places will also lubricate your wheel bearings as a part of the proper maintenance of your vehicle.
  • Suspension issues: Worn shocks and struts as well as an imbalanced driveshaft can cause a shaky steering wheel. You’ll want to get these fixed right away.
  • Brake issues: The problem is most likely your brakes if your steering wheel shakes when you slow down. Schedule an appointment with us immediately if you experience this.
