!Vibration in steering wheel~
 
The past few days i've noticed vibration in the steering wheel in my 88 z31.. When I accelerate, it vibrates somewhat heavily. When I brake, it vibrates but I heard my rotars might need turned? Anyways, help! Thanks:icon_super:

Warped rotors only vibrate the steering wheel when you are braking.

Get your wheels re-balanced.

Ok. Can you switch tires all around when you want? I'm wanting to switch like the back left tire with the front left? My back rear tire is getting bald in the inside of the tire and I figured that I would switch both rears and same with the front. Will that throw the steering off?

Btw, my rotars are all new around as of 3 months or so ago.. I still have a warranty for them..

Your rotors are not the problem for the acceleration shake, and unless you've been riding your brakes, or got them REALLY hot, they are not warped, and are not the brake shake problem. So, have you been riding your brakes? Do you drive down a lot of steep streets?

Yes.

As long as the both L & R are the same size, it won't throw off steering.

As I stated before, get them re-balanced. If you hit / nudged a curb, pothole, or bump, you could have lost a wheel weight, causing the shake. Also make sure all lugs are tight.
