ok. my driver side front wheel seems to give a lot of vibration between 50-60mph. after that it becomes ok. it is not the balance since the tires are newly put on and balanced. someone told me to change the tie-rod but not sure. what would it be? and what kind of testing can i do to check what is exactly wrong with it?

get your tires rebalanced. The tie rod might be bad . Try to grab the wheel and see if threres any side to side play. Look at the tires and see what the wears like. If theres just random spots that are low its prolly the ball joint or somthing suspention related.

Put The Wheel That On The Front To The Back, If The Vibration Is Not There Then You Know Its In The Wheel, If The Vibration Is There Its Most Likely To Be Your Tirod, But It Could Be Bearings Or Ball Joint, Are Youhearing Any Type Of Roering, Itwould Sound Alittle Like Mud Grips On A Tuck

nismo t/c rods are a waste. they still use that dumb rubber bushing. pillow ball owns....as for his problem, a balancing weight could have come off while u were driving. just have ur tires re-balanced. as for the tie rod, when u steer does it make noise and grind? if it does, it could be ur tierod end.

Go back to the place where the tires were put on and ask them to do a roadforce balance because when they normally balance a tire there isnt any resistance on the tire so it could balance out fine but the second you put it back on the car its out of balance tell them you want a roadforce balance otherwise if you get the front wheels off of the ground and shake the tire up and down kind of like you did to check the tie rods (but opposite) there shouldnt be any play if there is you could have bad ball joints
