Volk TE37 w/Invo's

So i put these on the car today with the appropiate centering ring (seems awfully small) and I have a shimmy in the front end at speeds above 90. 19x9.5 in front and 19x10.5 rear all with 40psi.

Do you think the wheels must just be out of balance? Could it have anything to do with the wheel size? I see others on here running them and I havent seen any issues. I checked that the wheels were flush and the lug bolts were tight.

Also, what are others thoughts about the handling of the INVO's as compared to the PS2's? I've had PS2's on my last three cars and haven't satisfied with any other tire so far.

Thanks for your help!

I have the INVO's. I'd say the grip is about 85% and response about 60% of the PS2's.

Weird how you mention the front balancing problem. I had my wheels/tires balanced when I first got my Advan RS/INVO's on and about 2 weeks later had to get them rebalanced. I thought it was the original shops problem. It's about 6 weeks later, and I feel my wheels are slightly out of balance AGAIN. So I'm going to have them rebalanced again and see how off they are.

The INVO's are much cheaper, and handle almost as good (though I feel the steering response needs some work) and they are very quiet and comfy, but for this car I'm going to try the NT-05's next.

The NT05s are my track tires for my E46 M3. The tires are amazing!!!! Four 40 minute sessions in 85deg weather and no issues. Be forewarned, the sidewalls are very very stiff.
