Hey guys, i have a bit of a problem, iv just recently change my standard 15" 175 wheels to 15" 205 Alloys, they look hot yada yada yada, BUT when ever i reach the speed limit of 100kmph the steering wheel vibrates ALOT! sometimes it vibrates sometimes it doesnt, usually it does though at 100kmph, but any other speed under that, its fine, what could this be? could it be my suspension? the wheels? they are second hand wheels... what could cause it, and what will fix it? Thanks heaps if you have any opinions on this.
Jason

since the shaking only started with the new tyres, the most likely problem is that you need to get your front tyres balanced.. while your at it i recommend getting the rears balanced as well..

shouldnt cost more than about $30-40 at a decent place
