Hi, I recently change my wheels from stock 16 to 18 oz superleggra. However, I found that it is not as comfortable as before. When I drive on some bumpy road, the wheels vibrate as much that I have to hold the steering wheel with both hands. Is there something wrong with the wheels? Thanks

Trance means did you have the wheels balanced when you bought them? They should have been balanced when you got the tires mounted. Also, how old are your shocks? They may be having trouble dealing with the extra mass of the new wheels.

The wheels are used. They don't vibrate on flat roads. My shocks are stock and used for only one year.

I bought the wheels from a ebay old guy. I met him and got them in person. The guy was pretty nice though. How can I check what's wrong with the wheels? Or do you guys have the experience with 18 inch?

better check to make sure hub centering rings are in the center of the hub on the back of the wheel. Otherwise, you should look at having the wheel balance rechecked too.
