    Default Wobbling in Suzuki Alto PKDM

    Salam fellow Pakwheelers!
    I have a PKDM Suzuki Alto VXR 2008 32K on ODO, and i am experiencing some sort of wobbling in the rear especially at slow speeds and with passengers. Can anyone tell me what is causing this problem and what could be the solution to this?
    Regards.

    Same problem here:
    I had problem of brakes in ALTO 2006. I got it grinded from mechanic and that bubbling went off. Just after that i felt vibration while going at speed of 60km/h.
    Yesterday i got my tyres balanced.
    Now,
    The car shakes/bubbles at speed below 40Km/h and gets smooth above it. Now i am also confused about the its cause.
    Please guide!

    The tire can be the culprit or the rim .. Go for the balancing of the 4 tires.BTW 2008 model and 32K seems out of this world مجھے یقین کیوں نہیں اتا

    You are right. They have gotten hard, especially the ones in front.

    Take the tires off from the car and check thoroughly for any unusual wear and tare and bubbles if tire looks good than go to alignment shop and ask them to check the whole front suspension bushes, change the bad ones if any than get your car align, cambered and wheel balanced, i hope it will solve the problem. Alto has very poor quality bushes.

    Bro this prob is usual with PKDM alto. Its neither suspension nor old tyres, but rather the poor quality stock rims. I had this car just 3 months back and the same prob was there since i bought it in 2011. At first i was told by mechanic at suzuki dealership that its because of new suspension and will settle down with time. But it didnt and could be felt clearly at speeds above 80 km/hr. This was a usual phenomenon at speeds between 80 - 110 km/hr. Just before selling it i took it to a wheel balancing shop and was told that it is a manufacturing defect with the stock rims. The only way to get rid of it is to install alloy rims in the car. He also showed me this prob on his wheel balancing machine. I didnt believe him and went to another shop, only to be told the same thing there as well. This second mechanic even told me the name for this defect as well but i m forgetting it. You should change the rims, but before that do get your rims inspected at any good balancing shop.
