    I've got a 2007 cobalt lt I recently got for cheap that has some 17 inch rims (forget the brand, they were bought at discount tire) and kuhmo ecsta ast tires and its got a bit of vibration around 50 to 60 worse around 57ish. Anyways I had the wheels and tires balanced and rotated at discount tire and its still there. Any ideas. its rather annoying

    Car has 19k miles wheels have 10.

    Do the wheels have hub-centric rings?
    I had the same problem and it was because I didn't have hub-centric rings, got them on ebay and the problem is gone now

    :welcome: btw post some pics of your car

    Do they also vibrate when you push the brakes?

    You can see the hub-centric ring in this pic, its the blue piece in the middle.

    at low speeds no. At high speeds when the wheel vibrates yes.

    Well, check if you have the hub-centric rings.

    I have the same issue.. but i only notice it while braking... I was afraid it was my brake rotors.. so do you think I need rings as well? I took off the front rims last night to make sure they were tightened correctly from Discount Tire.. I did not look for the rings..

    If I do need some, how do I know which ones to get?

    Looking on ebay, i found these:
    One Set of 4 premium Hub Centric Rings carefully molded with high quality polycarbonate material that increases resistance to high temperatures and durability against impacts.
    Polycarbonate construction (increases resistance to high temperatures and durability against impacts).
    Corrects wheel and hub dimensions.
    Centers the wheel on a vehicles hub.
    Prevents wheel vibration.
    Product Specifications
    Quantity- Set of 4
    Material - Polycarbonate Plastic
    Color - Black
    Outer Diameter "Wheel"- 66.56mm OD
    Inner Diameter "Vehicle"- 57.1mm ID


    That correct or do I need ones that match my Konig Trouble Rims ?

    Thanks! I ordered the 57.1 to 73 and they fit the KONIG rims great.

    bad news is I still feel the vibration when braking.. i'm fairly sure it didn't start until after I got the rims.. I was hoping the HUBCentric rings would have solved it..

    any ideas what I can check?

    Thanks!
