    not likely but make sure the lugs are on right. I had my tires rotated at sears and they put the lugs on backwards on the front driver tire and it would drive normal when I was going slow when when I would speed up it would start to shake.

    Just to get this out of the way, you (or whoever installed them) know that you need to tighten the lugs cross diagonally correct?
