Last night, I was driving downtown and as I merged into a lane I hit a pot hole...pretty hard. The thing really caught me by surprise and I cringed as it happened.
The wheel looks fine and all...but at about 80 km/h, I can now feel like that driver side front wheel is wobbling. I do not remember the car riding like that at all....so I think something fucked up...
I don't think the wheel is bent or anything, could it be something else?
Also, my passenger side front wheel always has these black traces of something (view picture)...it looks like something the brake pads would spew out....I always notice it on that wheel...my driver side front wheel, which now wiggles at high speed, never seems to have those...
Could it be that the right side brakes harder than the left??
Hmmm im not sure what that could be... my rear right wheel does that too.... i havent hit anything but when it sits in the cold, sometimes before it warms up something vibrates... it irks the hell outta me ghead
Any suggestions on why our wheels are vibrating :P

It doesn't have to be at idle. Say it was a small coolant leak that developed under pressure. The water pump would only pump wil the ehine was revving and put the system under pressure, thus forcing out liquid. At idle, the system would be moving fast enough to cause this.

I definitely feel a shake in the steering wheel on the highway. When I hit the brakes to slow down, it was really apparent.
Also...that passenger side front wheel is just soooo dirty compared to the driver side. The car went out only twice since it was washed. That to me is just not normal. I guess my mecanic should be able to figure it all out tomorow.
The ASC and ABS lights are on all the time now in the car too...I suspect this is all linked together.
