Allright. I recently purchased some 17X8 wheels with yokahoma 215/45/17's on them. The tires are kinda old, but still good. Newayz i just put them on, and i noticed that when i get to about 25 miles - 50 miles, they shake. I have read some of the threads on this, but cant come up with anything other than.... i need to get them balanced, or get an alinement.
So... considering im not going to the stealer, how much does it cost to rebalance 4 tires?
To do list:
UUC System U TDM- 3/05
M50 manifold converstion 3/05
off to the tuning shop for custom software 4/05
Cams/lightened flywheel, throttlebody........ well lets see what happens
Ok... my fault, i wasn't clear. I bought the rims with the tires already on them from a private seller. I was told the rims wernt bent or anything, and i hope he wasnt lying. I was just wondering if rebalancing the tire would be a good idea. The wheels have been in storager for like 6 months.

It wouldn't hurt to get them rebalanced!!!!! More than likely that is your problem ,and it should only cost between 20-30 bucks at any tire shop!!!
One of two things is the problem here... either the way that guy stored them... he could have stored them upright.. meaning there is a flat spot in the tyre... or.. they just need to be rebalanced... sounds like they didnt exactly do it right or.. but my exsperiance... sometimes it just takes a few times...
But either way I would take them back and tell the guy to fix it.. due to the fact you bought them from him.. and it is his responsibility to fix them..
try to have it rebalanced. if it turns out bent, return it to seller. if you got it as-is, you can place the defective wheel at the rear while you get yourself a replacement. having a real wheel drive auto, it will be less felt if placed there.
