    yes. its stiffer and you will feel more vibration.

    have you done an alignment recently? hit a curb?

    also check to make sure you lug nuts on the rim are tightened down, i had the same problem after I left pep boys one day to change my brake pads and them fooker aint tighten all the bolts all the way, its little shit that can contribute to large problems

    If they're new wheels, you've got to retighten the lugs after 50 miles or they will loosen up and your wheel(s) could fall off. No joke, it's happened several times here in town according to one tire shop.

    My friend had a similar problem..the going to the left thing is simply an alignment problem...but the shaking thing in my friend's case turned out to be a f*cked up intermidiate shaft...and since you said it was on the left side where you could hear the noise coming from...that is the side the shaft is on, so check that out and see if it's that
