Wobble feed back from wheels

Help - On the look out for anyone who may have had a similar issue....
Basically when applying throttle there is loads of wobble feedback from the engine/wheels, it is intermittent but is accompanied by a knocking feeling (not audible), I considered it may be the tracking but it is only noticable when applying throttle? Could it be the shocks or perhaps it is an issue with clutch engaging probably????

Any advice welcomed!

Re: Wobble feed back from wheels

most likely damaged drive shaft or CV joint [ inner or outter ]

or possibly warped disc or imbalanced wheels

Re: Wobble feed back from wheels

Check your wheel nuts too.

I had a similar wobble until last weekend. I had a new tyre fitted by the place I've been going to for years. Warren who runs it place is excellent but his son isn't exactly the sharpest tool in the box. He can fit tyres and such but isn't the smartest cookie in the jar. Usually I stay and watch him do the job but I had to take my son to football so I left it with him.

When fitted the wheel had a chronic wobble that came and went. The reason? The *** had left the paintbrush they use to paint the rims with soap inside the tyre.

Driveshaft (inner) - I have just had mine diagnosed with the exact same symptons.

Was it yourself that emailed me???
