    Steering wheel shudders/vibrates

    For my 2001 Ody with around 84K miles on it, there's a heavy shuddering/vibration in the steering wheel while braking at speeds between 30-45.

    The tires were last balanced around 80K. The wheels haven't been aligned for a while.

    It also shudders/vibrates between the speeds of 60 and 70, but it is very light as compared to the one while braking.

    I think the later might be due to the tires being off-balance. However, I am not sure what is causing the earlier one.

    Recommendations/guidance/help, much appreciated.

    The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the Hidden Content .

    Probably the brake rotors. Conventional wisdom will say "run and get them turned" but I say otherwise. The shudder should go away overtime as things resettle. It is only natural that everything will come back to normal after another 10,000 miles. However, if you don't like to wait that long, have them turned. The drawback is that it will shorten the life of the rotors.

    Good luck.

    Thank you.

    Rotors might be the problem... haven't checked the brakes for sometime. Usually, how many time can the rotors resurfaced and used?
