Wheel Vibration Issue
So I want to bounce some ideas off of you guys who are more knowledgeable of car stuff than I am...so about a year ago I replaced my rotors (and pads) with r1 concepts cross drilled and slotted rotors....now about a year later I am getting wheel vibration when applying the brakes lightly...its goes away when I brake hard...I refuse to believe that my rotors are already warped again seeing that they are less than a year old. I do drive aggressively though. What I am wondering is my tires are old as hell and dry rotted and need replacing bad (going to replace them soon) and I experience slight wheel vibration at high speeds (65-70mph) which I know is due to the tires but is their a possibility that the old bad tires cause the vibration while braking? I know I will find out soon enough when I replace them but I just want to get your guys input....also one other thing and the reason why I am unsure as to why my wheel vibrates when I brake is when it gets really hot around here (mid 90's or higher) I get a creak when turning at low speeds from my front right wheel...I have no clue what it is so I am worried there is something messed up with my front end that is causing the vibration while braking and the creaking noise...but now that its cooler out (70s-low 80's) the noise is completely gone. I searched it on here and I think someone said replacing the control arm fixed it? I dont really know too much what I am doing with that stuff so I figured I would ask you guys before I take it in....going to get new tires in a week or so and if that doesnt fix my vibration issues I am taking it in....thanks for your input and sorry for the long post.
