    does the shake or shimmy go away or does it increase with speed?

    Seems to me that on the Hanook 20 in. tires the manual states that they will be slightly out of round when cold. The book says this is normal. I did experience this when vehicle was newer but after 10000 miles are better. They however are noisy on tar strips but smooth riding.

    I too have notice a shutter kind of feel in the gas pedal when accelerating hard from a stop. Don't notice it all the time. Only lasts one or two seconds. Will have to check and see if it only does it at start up. Feels to me almost like transmisson slipping in a shuttering way. Haven't noticed it in steering wheel. Another thread said everything from flat tire spots to electric power steering compensating for torque steer. Could it be the adaptive transmission?
