Default Vibration When I Brake

My car vibrates on the steering wheel when i brake especially at high speeds . I never change the rotors or sand them i did my brake pads about 15 thousand miles ago thats about two years i heard it could be bad motor mounts or cv joints but i have no clue .

All tires inflated at the same 35 psi any help please ?

Your rotors need to be resurfaced or changed. Has nothing to do with wheels

Warped rotors, options are to get them turned or replaced.....IMO the stock rotors are junk. Some have no issues with them but i seem to warp them easily with in 10k miles of getting them turned. Replaced the stock rotors with some EBC drilled/slotted rotors paired with EBC red stuff pads at about 30k miles and haven't had a reason to look at them since. Now at 70k miles.

I have a slight vibration on my 07 as well. I've tried all the common stuff and it's still there. I've done brand new rotors,pads, wheels tires, rebalancing and it's still there. It really is very slight and really only noticeable at higher speeds,but it's still there...

Just while braking. Actually it only does it for a few seconds after applying the brakes.

Any abnormal vibration is bad. Check out those rotors and refinish or replace, first place I'd look...

Default Re: Vibration When I Brake

If it only vibrates when braking that would be the rotors. If it does it while moving and no braking, it could be a tire concern. If it is present at slow speeds like 10 mph or so check the tires for a shifted belt or irregular wear. or even bent rim. If it starts to vibrate around 60 mph and goes away some at 80 or 90 that would indicate a balance issue. I usually drive the car and verify vibrations if in front or rear then rotate tires and isolate it from there. Also keep in mind that if you replace your rotors to correct the pulsation sometimes the new part can be warped from storage on the shelves too long and still may need to be turned. Just because a part is new doesn't mean it is not broken.

Warped rotors and Hotspots ( had this problem alot with oem)

Balanced tires ( had this problem with a shops uncalibrated machines balancing factory wheels)

Alot of hard braking can throw off the balance , the tire will slip around rim throwing it out of balance especially if you got brand new tires. That stuff they put on the tire has to set. Common on low Pros .I did this burning out on my 22s, shop technician told me what was happening after my second visit complaining of wobbling to get them rebalanced.Hot spots (smooth spots on your rotors that hender the braking) occur from alot of hardbraking as well especially with big rims


rotors - wobble steering /vibration when braking

balanced tires - definite wobble in steering with varying speeds

Both are common problems with our cars if you google especially balanced tires or better yet steering wobble and definitely for hard drivers like me. I had to learn the hardway. Now i use better parts

Hope this helps

Rotors, you remember if you washed your car Hot? If you throw water on heated rotors they will bend. my 2 cents.

We have alot of bugs in Mississippi. I use to spray my car off as soon as i exited the highway at the first carwash i got to. Warping rotors was a biggie for me. Havent had a problem with aftermarkets doing it YET.

seems like the rotors, like others have said. I have heard of stock rotors warping easily, as well as brembo blanks warping easily(don't know if it was a bad batch or a common problem)
