Slight Vibration at freeway speeds on new wheels...

Had my new wheels and drop installed a week ago. After an alignment, I noticed a slight vibration at freeway speeds. It's not constant, but rather rhythmic, on and off every few seconds. Can anyone help?

i had a friend talking the other day about how he had just put 20" (monte carlo) on his car and when they did his alignment they used various weights to test the stability at higher speeds.

did the people who mounted your wheels do this?

Maybe they need to be balanced again.

Get your wheels rebalanced. Its hard to say, even your tire might be a little defect. These is a lot of idiots in the wheel & tire business, that have no clue what they are doing.

Good Luck wink

make sure that wehn they pu your wheels back on after the alignment that they put them back on the correct wheels and not so they are rotating backwards.
