So I just installed some 17" rims...i got some questions...
They look badass (i'll have pics up tomarrow noon time after i wash it)


But with the stock 16" rims, when driving down the road, doing say 60mph, i could move the steering wheel back and forth and the car didn't really wobble at all.

Now, when i do it, it wobbles like my old 91 mazda 626 does.

Is this common for installing rims? I plan on doing the TRD suppsenion kit.

Thanks!

How much does that usually run?


Also, where can i find the TRD spring/strut package at?

Should I do TRD or Tokico?
