Check wheel balance. Also with the bigger wheels come more weight, that more unsprung weight which is detrimental to your handling.

Hubcentric rings. My steering wheel shook like crazy and after the hubcentric rings I dont notice it. I would recommend hubcentric rings for any aftermarket rims. thumbsup

CV joint = constant velocity joint. it is the joint on your front axels that lets your wheels turn and keeps them turning at a constant velocity even though the angle changes. it's covered by a rubber boot and is kinda the shape of a sphere or a football.

I don't know what hubcentric rings are though... what are they and what do they do for your car?
