    Default Steering wobble

    hello!
    recently put 17" alloys on my car. vx gsi one's to be precise.
    now since i have them on i get a wobble from the steering.

    had the wheels rebalenced.. they aer spot on.. but still get a wobble.
    never had it before, so what could it be???

    Did you have them aligned when you had them re-balanced? My old DTI was on non-standard 17"s and I found it to be quite sensitive to bumps - it was easy to knock the tracking out slightly.
