Question: Other than tires being out of balance, why does thw front end shimmy?

Honda Garage said the Honda wheels feel like they are out of line because of the type motor they are built with. My oringinal tire were soft rubber and they wore out in 14000 miles. They install hard rubber tire, supposely balance, but it shimmy more now. They checked it out and said only solution is buy a new car! Is this a true statement or is the garage tryiong to hard sell me?

You need to talk with the person in charge of the service department. A car that is 2011 should not shimmy at all. I would make a big fuss over it. Keep going to the top till you get what you want. If they put the tires on you and you still have a shimmy they need to put new tire on for you. The front end could have bad tie rod ends ball joints. But the car is very new to have one of those going out.
