    Default 19" vxr wheels

    bit of advice needed after purchasing some very nice vxr wheels off ebay yesterday, can i use the original wheel nuts from the 17" sri wheels or will i have to get bigger nuts? (steering seems to have a mind of its own since i put them on, any ideas)

    My 19s are a bit of a handful sometimes, tramlining and tugging over drains and bumps etc. Just part of having big wheels with low profile tyres AFAIK.

    check your tyres mate as they may be directional and perhaps fitted the wrong way

    check the balancing on the wheels and the tracking on your car
