Shimmy!! Shimmy!!

I have a 2009 ralliart and I replaced factory wheels with two kinds of after market wheels. Enkei and Proline with a tire upgrade to 18x8's. I also tried Maxxis tires and Falken and I have a shimmy problem after 60nph. Took to dealership and they put OEM wheels on it and no shimmy. Put after market wheels on and shimmy!! Also tried hub centric rings! No dice!! Anyone have a clue!!

The wheels are bent, not round or straight, not mounting properly against the hubs, etc. Any competent tyre/wheel shop can address these issues for you.

Yes and thanks. I went on line and found the GSP9700! It's a state of the art balance machine. The mitsubishi dealership here in mesquite texas didn't even know about it. But the Hyudia dealership next door has one. I had to tell the smart mechanics at the mitsubishi dealership about it. And I replaced my cheap proline wheels from Pepboys with Enkeis that are made for my ralliart. A big lesson of what after maker rims to not buy. Had a friend at Pepboys that I did some Jewelry work for convinced me of buying at a cheap cost . Should have known better. But the good news is that the smart machanics,wanted old rims and the factory ones that came with the car. 600.00$ later I covered the cost for Enkies!! Lucky me!! FYI Top speed here I'm texas made it happen with the Enkies!!
