Steering Wheel Shakes

Just got me new dubs installed and upon driving I noticed my steering wheel shaking. Not crazy shaking but enough to notice. Does that happen on newly installed 20" rims? Or is it a balance problem? I was there when the guy balanced the wheels and it balanced out correctly. Any suggestions or input?

Alignment or tire pressure. Get it checked it should not shake if everything is done correctly.

You went from a massive profile of rubber to a very thin layer of rubber so it's just less cushioning that you're feeling

Maybe the centering of the wheel to the hub off size, the center hole on the wheel larger than the hub on the car, needs centering disc inserts to stop the shake or go back to old wheels to confirm it is wheels

I'd say the wheels aren't balanced properly or your steering is out if alignment. The alignment could be more pronounced with the bigger wheels especially of they are wider.

Only use Roadforce Balance machines. Most shops have them by now.

Thank you all for the replies, I was thinking of taking it in to America's Tire Co. to get it realigned. I'll keep y'all updated to how it went.

Is it when you brake or all the time? I have 20s on mine as well and mine starts to shake when I brake. I just replaced the pads 300 miles ago and it still does it. I think it's my rotors

I have the same problem but I have stock rims and tires, and when I go about 55+mph my steering shakes... Alignment maybe?

Oh no just when driving. But it's been going away. It's not too noticeable now. I'm still going to get it rebalanced to be safe.

Yeah with stock it may be your alignment.
