New tires... Need heavier shocks?
I have a 2010 sahara and have recently upgraded tires and wheels. I went from the stock 255/70/18 up to 325/60/18. The look is awesome and they handle perfect, no rubbing at all. The place that mounted them recommended to use beads for balancing (semi trucks use) so I decided to try them out. The idea is they re-balance every time you stop and start. well... they are in the shop getting regular balancing as I am writing this. ride fine sometimes and sometimes not. My question is when driving around town everything is good, however when I do thruway driving at 60mph or better, when there is a bump in the road the tires seem not to settle down from bump. I have to back off for a second to let them settle down. Is this due to the much heavier tires?? would heavier shocks help with this? and if so can you recommend a shock(s) that would help? thanks in advance
