Look at it close, are the tires wiggling or are the rims wiggling? If the rims are the the tires will also. If the rims are warped then so will the tires. If the rims are true then the tires are...

RE: better brakes for rusty

That sounds like a better way to go. If you get front brakes on the vehicle, applying front brakes can make your problem worse due to the weight shifting when braking and causing the rear to be...
