    Hi,

    had got my car serviced at George Automobiles Thane & got my wheel aligned &
    balanced there[ a word of caution , these guys do not have any experience in
    handling fiat cars..my wipers were put the wrong way, beading work on car door
    done haphazardly, screws not fitted in, lack of quality checks on work done etc
    etc]

    Recently Noticed that my car has started to wobble [left to right movement ]when
    its in first & second gear & gets less as i pick up on speed & higher gears.

    What could be the cause of this, could it be the tyres or a minor puncture[
    tyres are filled with nitrogen @ 30 PSI & visually look ok]
    or a wheel balancing problem

    Have completed 33,000 kilometers & my car is 2008 model.

    do your wheel balancing in some tyre shop they will do it more accurately than tass.
  3. had similar problems with my uncles estilo
    we got it checked several times for wheel bearings damage, wheel alignment and balancing..but it didnt get corrected
    Finally got Michelin tyres fitted and the wobble has gone..
    Jk tyres have this problem of wobbling after 25 to 30K kms as confirmed by a tyre dealer
    Try to locate the source of wobble viz front or back tyres.
    What about high speed handling,Does the streering shake??

    when i drive the car at higher gears/speed, the wobbling gets less.there is no problems in steering.
    but let go of the wheel on a straight road & the car moves towards the left side gradually.
    currently am using bridgestone tyres which came factory fitted.

    Get the wheels aligned and balanced from a reputed wheel aligment shop. This should solve it.

    Plus, get your tires checked for any deformity.
