One of the most common things that a mechanic checks for in a car that needs servicing is the wheel bearings. These tiny parts are very important in ensuring that the car keeps running safely and that the wheels are performing at a good level without any immediate danger of wearing out. This is important because sometimes the wheels tend to lose steam midway and suddenly get faulty. Proper wheel bearings will ensure that such a thing does not happen at any time. They may be tiny parts, but are still very important parts which ensure smooth running of the car.
That is why you should take proper care of your wheel bearings and have them checked regularly by the mechanic whenever you take the car in for some repair or checkup. Regular checking of the wheel bearings will help keep them in good condition and if there is any damage detected, they can be replaced very soon, without having to wait for the damage to show any effect. So always remember to get your wheel bearings checked so that they remain in top condition and your wheels can be running on and on for a long time to come without any sort of problems whatsoever.
If your problem persists then it probably is a problem with your suspension parts. However looking at the wheel can still tell you something about your suspension. For instance you should look at the tread of the tires and whether it is even across the whole width of the wheel. There should be no variations such as low or high spots, however if it is in fact worn more on one side than the other then this may be a problem with your suspension parts or with wheel misalignment. If your wheels are out of line then this is likely a result of your steering parts. It is important to take your car to a garage where they can look into this problem and correct the necessary car parts. If this does not happen then your tire may eventually deflate and it may affect your car.
If the treads show small indentations (called cupping) however, then this is likely a result of your suspension parts and specifically with your shocks. By finding the tire where this is a problem, it is possible to identify the area where this is a problem. You can buy many auto parts online, so at this point you should purchase new shocks for your car and should then have them installed by a trained mechanic or install them yourself. Failing this, if problems continue you should have a mechanic examine your suspension parts.
Make sure that your tires are all at the right pressure level. To do this, visit your nearest petrol station and they should have a tire pump – some are free while others require a small fee to run. Unscrew the cap on the tire, and attach the nozzle of the pump to the tire this way. As soon as the pump is on the valve then it should display the pressure a read out. This will be in 'PSI' and you should have all your wheels at around 60PSI though this may vary (consult the manual that came with your car). If the area you were feeling vibrations in coincides with a tire low in pressure, then you will very likely have identified the problem. You then hold the trigger to fill the tire with air, and release it to get the read out as you go. Try to ensure that all of the tires are at the same level and that they are sufficiently topped up.
