Default Need help with HEAVY 20in wheels

The problem I have is (with 20s) I cant go faster than 60mph or the whole car starts shaking in the front, mostly on the left. I know its the wheels cus theyre 20x8.5 and tires are 275/40/zr20 and with that, one wheel with tire wieghs around 60-70 pounds!!! Shoud I just sell the wheels or shoud I change suspesion parts?

when was the last time you had them balanced? maybe you have slung a weight. i wouldn't say just sell the wheels unless you just dont want them anymore. you mayy have a tire out of ram( not truely round)

to be honest i dont have the exact number but they are heavy, they are probably close to yours, maybe a little less because of the smaller tires. i dont have a problem with mine though. are the weights on the inside lip or the sticky onen on the inside? mine are the sticky on the inside. have they been doing this since you got them ar they just start?

At first they were fine. But after a week it started skaking. Wats the sticky? btw I had the suspension checked about 2 weeks ago n firestone said said everything is fine.

I had the same prob after I got my new wheels. took em back to the place 2x and THEY said they were fine... as i'm bouncing all over the f-ing road!! ... Find a place w/ a road force ballancer (or something like that) Come to find out the original joint had like 5 xtra ounces on my wheels! (---)..
