"Really loud at speed" is probably subjective in this case. Loud to you may not be loud to JeeperJake for instance. Certainly you can address that by switching to a less aggressive tread pattern (all terrain) I run the BFG All Terrain and I think they're relatively quiet. The real concern that I would have is the wobbly-ness over 65. That could obviously be affecting your handling and make it dangerous to drive. It's usually not just one thing that causes this, but maybe a combination of several small things.
Assuming that your alignment is good, and the wheels are balanced, steering components not worn out...
- Check your tire pressure, most people run anywhere from 29-32 psi, any more than that tends to make them feel twitchy.
- Also, your wheels are not hub centric, so it's imperative that they are torqued down correctly. You may want to consider hub rings if you keep the wheels.
Worth? Who knows, but substantially less than what you paid, I'm sure. I don't know what you mean by selling them and using the money to put into things you'd get more use out of... but my guess is your not going to get nearly enough when you consider what you paid originally, and what you will be able to buy with the proceeds.
Air for the tires, and elbow grease for the lug nuts are free. And you might get lucky and alleviate most of the issues.
My $.02 is you've got some heavy tires that are probably hard to balance, combined with wheels that don't fit properly.
*standing on soapbox* I've been there. Cool wheels aren't very cool when they don't fit right. They make your vehicle drive and handle poorly. Personally, I'd never consider an aftermarket wheel that isn't hub centric. At the very least, get some METAL hub rings to make them fit, don't waste time with the plastic ones.
