I had the tires rotated and balanced last week and driving home noticed the car was shaking like the road was very bumpy. I called the dealership and they said it'd work its way out after a couple days. It's gotten a little better but I still feel like the roads are a lot bumpier than they really are. It's like a constant vibration.

Is this something I should go back in for or ignore it? It's not extreme but it's enough that I notice a difference.

"work its way out"!? I could be wrong but that surprises me. if it is still doing it now, I'd bring it back.... your car shouldn't be worse after taking it in for service.

I'm not sure if I'm imagining it. It just seems bumpier than I remember. I'll try taking it in though. They did say my rim is bent a little on one wheel. Could that be causing it?

Yep, get that rim fixed and it'll probably go away.

One time i had to take one of my tires off for some reason... Anyways, didnt tighten the lugnuts as much as i thought i did. Needless to say, it got pretty violent at the wheel worked its way looser day by day until I noticed something definitely wrong. When I checked out my wheel, the lugnuts were about 1.5 turns from being as tight as they should be. You might want to try tightening them down, although I imagine a service center would use an air wrench and get those things really tight

I had that issues as well. My tires were shaking like the Wolverines in South Bend. I had to tighten them up more than Michigan needed to tighten up their secondary. Crazy stuff.
