    steering wheel wobbles

    I hit a big rock today and punctured my tire I drove home on the tyre and the car drove fine. When I put on the spare tyre the steering wheel wobbles from side to side badly when I pick up speed. What could be wrong?

    The new wheel might need to be balanced? Or the wheel is slightly bent; you may not notice it until you get up to higher speed.

    That wobble is the sign of a bad tire, or bent rim. A slight vibration could just be an out of balance tire, but a violent wobble is a tire where the steel belts are separating on the inside and is not fixable.

    The problem might be with your spare

    Put your normal wheel back on after the tire repair and see if you still have the wobble

    You may have bent a suspension. Piece
