Shakey steering wheel
 
About 2 weeks ago I had the dealership put brand new tires on the wk and I noticed that when Im at 75 to 80 mph the steering wheel shakes should I go back to the dealer to fix this and I also noticed that they put weight on the outside and inside of my rims hmmmm?

Get them re-balanced ASAP from where ever you bought the tires from!!!! Like mines were shaking big time when I got them. I took my Jeep back to Costco and they rebalanced the tires.....Felt sooo much smoother!

Just get a re balance. But weights on the inside and outside is just another way to balance tires. The machine i used to work with you just hit the settings for where you wanted to locate weights (inside, outside, or stick on) and it would spin the tire and tell you where to put the weights and how much. It is normal and not some freak thing.

Take them back and make them do a free alignment for your troubles.

RE-Balance! and while they're at it, have a reputable shop check the front end for tierod play.

you have the chrome clad wheels so they need balanced with the special finger tool. Its an attachment that uses the bolt holes on the chrome clad wheels. They should know this.....
