For some reason when I am slowing down and almost at a complete stop, my truck starts to shake. I thought it might have been the warped rotor problem. Then I paid extra attention and noticed it was doing it when I took my foot of the pedal. It only happens at a crawl. Somebody told me it might be my tires. What are your opinions?

If you're still under warranty I would take it in and get it looked at, couldn't hurt to have it given the once over. Notice any shaking at higher speeds?


Metallic- sounds like rotors for you. Good luck to ya both.

my dads 2002 had this... replaced pads/rotors and inspected tires for low/high spots.... it was the rotors/pads.

I had a slow wobble....you could feel it and see it in the mirrors.....it was one of the tires. I replaced them recently and the problem is gone. You might want to check to make sure the lugs are tight
