hey guys, just wondering, for those of you who got aftermarket rims and tires, did u notice any steering wheel shake when hitting about 110 or 100. I just got my rims a week ago and hit 110 today and i believe the installer didnt balance them right. any input would be cool. eric

Hey man ...Actually i just got home from work and i hit about 115 and i didnt notice any shake at all. But it was my first time takin my ep that fast and i just got my wheels put on yesterday so maybe i wasnt payin that much attention:D . What size wheels you have?

i got some 16x7 race mods with 205/50/16 toyo tires. My left front camber is off by 1.82 degrees, but it was also like that with my stock wheels. but when i had my stock wheels, didnt feel any wheel shake up tp 130. but now i am noticing a slight wheel shake. i am gonna check to see if its unbalanced. Oh yeah my wheels look just like rotas and spoons, supposedly they weigh 11 lbs with valve stem, dont know with tires, but when school is over, ima weigh them to see if they are lighter than rotas.
