Shaking problem now.

Today I was on the road and this guy in front of me about cost me my car. I had to slam my brakes and it locked them up and I slid for about 100-150ft I would say. Rough guess and there was a huge cloud of smoke from my tires. I got back going and now there is this constant vibrating/shaking problem. It's not really affecting driving but it's so annoying and it's scaring me that it might wreck itself sooner or later. What could this be? Thanks guys

Could be a seized caliper, check your rotours when you get home or something.

that ^ or you could have burnt a flat spot in your tires if it locked up and rolled smoke.

is the shaking coming from the steering wheel or your seat?

if the shaking is coming from the steering wheel then its somethin to do with your front tires. either youve warped a rotor from the sudden hard braking, caliper locked up, or you made a flat spot in the tire.

It sounds like you probably flat spotted your tires Skyler.
If they're not staggered, try rotating them to the back and see if that helps any.

I have a guy coming to look at the car to buy it Monday. Any suggestions on a simple fix to this without buying a new tire. Bc if he drives it and it's shaking he prob won't buy it or try to get it for dirt cheap. I know this sounds stupid, but would doing a standing burnout help even it out a little bit. That's a far stretch but I mean it's worth a try, right? Lol

you would just melt the flat spot down more which would be a bit more dangerous. it might round off the edge but id be more worried about actually breaking somethin

Ok thanks, tomorrow about noon I'm going to switch them up front and hopefully that will fix it.

Oooo wow, there is your problem. Looks like the car needed new tires any way so either replace both tires or tell the buyer to replace them.

Did he not speed up? Why did you need to lock your tires that far lol
