Steering wheel shakes

When i get up to 60 mph the steering wheel shakes and starts pulling to the right. Recently took off both front tires and put them back on and it started to shake the steering wheel. Was wondering what could cause this?

Go back to the last place you were working in, common sense .
Did not shake before the wheels were removed.







think about it

Errhhh...so you took the front wheels off and put them back on - nothing or no reason for removing the wheels, like cleaning them or just wanting to get a better look at them or nothing?

Ahhh, so there was a reason for it. Actually sounds like you might have gotten something caught between the wheel and hub when you put them back on - probably just one side is the culprit.

If it is the aluminum slot wheels pictured in your last thumbnail photo, it is possible for them to get cocked on the lug shanks and tighten up crooked wedged on the lug shanks and not pulled up tight to the mounting surface, especially if you tighten just one too much before adding any of the others.
I've seen it happen.
Start all five, screw them all in a little at a time moving equally until the wheel is in contact with the drum/rotor hat.
