2005 Tahoe. I just put some 22" rims on this car and the steering wheel shakes when I drive over 50 mph. I've put these rims on before and didn't have a problem. I switch between the rims and the stock wheels every year or so. I have had this car since I bought it new in 2005. What could be the problem?

Do you
have the same problem?

It turns out the bearings are shot. Sigh.

Using 22s will do that to your bearings.

Are there any type of bearings that can be used especially for larger rims?

No, the larger rims ruin the bearings. Try to stay with an American name brand and stay away from the Chinese made stuff.

Buy a high quality bearing with good warranty.
