How to Fix Rear End Vibration at Certain Speed
Bring your car to a reputable auto repair shop and have your tire balance. Two methods is used to balance the tire assembly, the first method is the static balancing where your tire assembly is removed in your car then put into balancing machine. The other method is the dynamic, where balancing is done while your tire is installed into your car, If you ask what type is the best, I would say it will be the dynamic balancing since it gives consideration on the influence of your car brake drums or brake disc during balancing.
