Aftermarket Wheel Balancing Issues
I recently put a set of aftermarket wheels on my truck in December. They are Vision Assassins that I got from DTD. I have had all kinds of issues since putting them on. Basically anything from bad vibration to a near death wobble at anything over 60 mph, even after having one wheel replaced. I finally just had them road force balanced at the dealership and they are better, but there is still a significant vibration at about 70 mph. They are also telling me that another one of the wheels is bad and needs to be replaced.
I'm seriously considering returning all the wheels and going with the Pro Comp 7089s (I know I will need to do some trimming with 285s). However, I don't want to go through all that hassle and still have issues. Is this just to be expected with aftermarket wheels? I know many members run the Pro Comps and I haven't read any complaints, but I'm still concerned. Thoughts?
Also, I had no issues after installing my lift and driving on the stock OR wheels for a month. The problems did not start until changing wheels.
