    Steering wheel shake is more than likely a balancing issue.

    Those 33" tires are not gonna feel as stable. I had the same complaint originally but after putting a few thousand miles it went away and my tires wear nicely. Might be something your just not used to.

    33's should not be any more unbalanced than any other tire, and should not provide noticable vibes,wobble, or anything that would just piss you off. Take them back to the tire shop and have an experienced tech balance them for you. Make sure they don't just chuck you back over to the high school kid to do it. If that doesn't cure it, have your alignment checked. Good Luck!

    Agreed-balance, But get them road forced balanced, make sure they use the adapter not the center hole on the wheels. TRUST ME. Fought this issue for a long time this makes a world of difference.
