Default Mad front end shudder

Hmm, it'* not a ridiculous shudder where the whole car shakes a lot, just enough to feel in the petals. Well the whole car does vibrate but its not too bad. But it'* kinda loud. What could this be? I think the tires may be orginal(goodyear eagels i think). One rims has a decent size dent in it. I hope its the tires or something easy. any opinions?

Default shudder

could be bent rim , tires out of balance , or worn front end parts. i would start with checking for play in front end..........if all looks good..........have tires rebalanced.

Out of balance tends to just make the steering wheel shake, unless its really off. Take her in and have the alignment checked as well as balaning the tires.
