    Snowflakes

    Would putting Astra Gsi Snowflakes wheels (17in) with 225-45-17 tyres onto a Zafara cause problems. They have been balanced but shake at around 70mph. Mmm need advice peeps....

    Thanks

    they may be buckled if they shake and have been balanced.

    The wheels were fine on my Astra Gsi running 215-40-17s but causing problems since the 225-45-17s tyres went on the abd put on the Zafara. They have been balanced twice although at the same place.

    quick test when they balance them. Get them balanced then when 'perfect' get them to turn the wheel a half turn on the balancer shaft and spin up again. If a reading comes up their machine needs recalibrating
