    Alignment Question/Troubles

    I have an 04 WRX with no suspension mods, except for 17" rims 225/45 Toyo Proxes (POS) tires. It seems like since i have owned the car, I have had what seems to be alignment problems. More specifically, at freeway speeds (110 mph - hehehehe) the steering wheel shakes a moderate amount and is steering slightly to the right; enough to concern me. Numerous times I have had it checked and they say the that on the alignment table, everything looks "good." I rotated the tires the correct way, but to no avail. I don't know if it is a tire problem, suspension problem, etc, but I'm pretty anal about my car and this is not cool. Anyone else had these problems and if so what corrected it?

    Entirely common for cars to shake at illegal speeds due to tire wear. Also, if your in the right lane, expect your car to pull right, and in the left lane, the car should pull left. Highways are built with a raised center to eliminate pools of water.

    I guess my dry humor ruined my post. More specifically, it is not necessarily when I am on the freeway, but speeds above 55 mph; and to clarify I rarely speed. I haven't hit 100 mph for months.
