I just installed Aftermarket LG wheels on my 2010 Camaro SS Same size and offset as factory ZL1 rims. i put brand new Goodyear F1 Supercar tires on them OEM size all around. Now I have a very slight shimmy in the steering wheel between 50-60 MPH. I have had them balanced twice, Second time on a Hunter Road Force Balance machine. That made it better. But still there a little bit. Any thoughts??

You might want to have your wheels and tires indexed. That's an extra step that some shops do to get a wheel balanced as perfectly as possible.

My dealership did mine and did an awesome job. One of my wheels is perfectly balanced without a single weight.

Finally got a chance to clean my car and take a few pics of my new Michelins PSS tires. I love them! The chosen sizes fit perfect with our cars.

Front 295/35/20



Rear 315/35/20

Less noise, better ride and more grip. Talk about win win.

Believe it or not, I only use soap and water on my tires and wheels. I'm terrified to use anything else because I worry about hurting the finish on my wheels.

I got lucky and I sold my 1400 mile GY's for a decent price. So the investment for the Michelins wasn't that bad.
