Question about tires

so i bought a set of rims off craigslist with tires on em and the tires suck! i looked at em carefully before i bought em, and they looked good, but they vibrate like crazy at 70 and up, had em balanced(w roadforce) and its still there, so i know must be the tires are cupped or just f*ct! anyways i know the proper size on 20s is 275/45/20, but since i have no cash i gotta buy used again. on craigslist a guy is selling his used 265/50 R20 nittos. do any of you know if this will work on 20x9 wheels on my 05 limited? it sux i gotta go back on craigslist, but i got no cash for new tires fml..

thanks,
andy

Re: Question about tires

scott i dont have much $ so (prepare to laugh) i only got like $150 for tires that will last me at least 20k with no shakes or bullshit. i know im cheap as shit, but got too much other stuff going on. i was tempted to put my stocks back on, and post the rims and tires back on craigslist, but i dont want to be a cockroach and screw someone else over, plus i love the wheels on my car!

Re: Question about tires

I would find another place to get them balanced that has the proper hub adapter. This is almost certainly a balance issue, not a bad tire issue. Just take it to the Jeep dealer and they can do it.

Re: Question about tires

uggh ive already taken it back to the tire shop twice, both times i saw all the wheels balance to zero on the machine, but they still shake. neither me or the tech doing it saw a prob w the tires, but thats what theyre saying now. the guys at the shop i manage also think its a tire issue because of the faith we normally put into this tire shop(we sublet all our tire/alignment work there). im trying to figure out if i should give a dealer a try to the tune of $75 or just buy used tires for $150, im soo strapped for cash its not even funny!! thanks guys

Re: Question about tires

yeah I hear ya! I bought some new tires for a 3000GT a couple years ago and they were out of round...BRAND NEW! I had to wait for a new set and have them installed. Ebay may be aa good source for a cheap set to get you buy.

Have you checked the wheel hub centerbore? I put rims on an Audi A6 and they shook like mad, I balanced the new tires and new rims multiple times. Ended up being the wheel was mounted lug-centric instead of hub-centric.

Most major tire shops have an assortment of these poly/plastic rings for standard hubs diameters to fit most vehicles. IIRC they were like $15-20 for the set of four.
