Well it sounds like you need new tires regardless if it fixes the wobble or not....

However that shouldn't be the cause of any new shakes or shimmies.

Read this,

Follow the steps.

If you need new tires, get new tires...they may be causing some shimmy but its not the cause if death wobble.

Search for Planmans write up... Good info.

My experience is DW almost always starts in the tires/rims and becomes more evident as other items wear. Harmonics and slop. Alignment, ball joints, hardware are things I would look at. It sounds like you need new tires regardless.

How many miles do you have on the rig?
