    Hey guys, after I switched to the Cobra R's I noticed that the steering wheel vibrates alot. From about 40-50mph it vibrates and in the freeway at 70mph it also vibrates. It's so bad that the passenger seat also vibrates. My brother had the rims on his Cobra before he sold it, and when he bought them from Tirerack.com they were already balanced. What could be the problem? Do I have to get the wheels balanced again? Thanks...

    Yea...hopefully it's just the front 2 that need to be balanced. Thing that sucks is that mounting/balancing cost the same as just having the wheels balanced.

    Yes. Rebalance the tires/rims. Make sure the tire pressure is good also.
