you're talking about a steering alignment??? well good thought, my wife took it to the dealership and they gave her some $85 estimate, but i don't think that was for balancing the tires...lol... but she didn't say what exactly they said..... another thing is that it wasn't doing that **** with the stock rims..... will going bigger cause that????

Hubcentric rings. I had the same problem. I got the rings, and bam, it was gone completely.

they are rings. Take your rims to a wheel shop so they can fit it with your wheels and your car.

Also, make sure you've torqued the wheels in a star pattern and that you haven't flat-spotted the tires.

well when I had a vibration problem with my new tires/wheels all I had to do was remove the wheels and put them back on but tighten all the lugs evenly in a criss cross pattern, didn't need the hubcentric rings. I think they sell for about 20 bucks for a set of four.

thankx folks.... i think the lug tighten deal might be the issue.... everyone knows that when some wheel shops put the tires on they usually just go in the old fashion circle type fashion with that damn impact wrench... I definitely need to sort that out... but the alignment might be the case to since i haven't had it done since i bought the car....
