I got a question

Hey guys..I have a 2006 G6 and when i get up to about 40 mph i get some shaking of the steering wheel. I am pretty car illiterate so i have no clue what the problem is.

I just recent;y got my car inspected in april and they mentioned nothing about it. Any ideas on what could be wrong?

alignment or tires are bad. Rotate front to back and see if it goes away.

Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

Sounds like a bad tire to me. Hit any large bumps recently?

Not sure if this helps at all but it could be your rotors especially if it shakes when braking. I had mine "trimmed" 3 times so far for being warped. Good luck on debugging the problem.
