Guys,
Just finish my widebody, problem is that with the 30 mm back spacers, now the steering wheel starts to vibrate at the speed of 140 km/h. Could it be the spacers? I got the wheels balanced and aligned. Or, after an accident to my left back wheel (and the whole suspension) i got everything replaced brand new, and there are 1 tire newer than the other 3? or the suspension wasn't set up well?
Car's beautiful, but the driving really annoys me. Can anyone help please? TADTS

Thanks guys!
PK
(if the tires are the problem, im gonna go get a new set tomorrow, with the 205-16 front 235 -17 rear Bridgestone RE-01 as some of you recommended in the other thread)

The easiest way to trouble shoot would be to pull off the spacers and run it down the road. If the vibration was gone, it was caused by the spacers. If it's still there, you can rule the spacers out and start to check other things like using a different set of wheels and tires with the spacer.

Are the new spacers hubcentric?
