Stepper Motor Issue

Hello, I am experimenting with 2 steppers to make them run together using Threads. I am using STM32 Nucleo F767ZI development board. One of the stepper motors vibrates too much while running the code. But, they run smoothly while making them run separately. I think the issue is with the threads. What could be the better solution?

#include "mbed.h"
#include "stepperMotor.h"

Serial pc(USBTX, USBRX);

int recepticlestepspeed = 400 ;                                //motor speed for recepticle conveyor stepper
int recepticlenumstep = 800; 

int microtrackstep_speed = 400 ;                             //motor speed for microtrack conveyor stepper
int microtracknumstep = 133;

Thread *t1;                         
Thread *t2;                         
Thread *t3;                         
Thread *t4;                         

sMotor recepticle_conveyor(PF_5, PF_10, PA_7, PF_2);       

sMotor microtrack_conveyor(PA_3, PC_0, PC_3, PF_3);
