Pro Compl wheels...HELP!!!!!

Well I am in a SH&^ spot now. I bought my new wheels (pro comp 98 flat black) and 33" duratracs last week and had them installed monday. Got a shake at about 45mph...wheels where not balanced right. Took them back yesterday, re balanced and got a shake starting at around 50mph...took them in today and sales man told me its the wheels. They are not tru and have a lot of give to them so they cant get them balanced perfect enough for the heavy 33" tires. Now I am stuck trying to find black aluminum wheels, per his recommendation. Of course its $40 more a wheel and I have all 5. Why do I feel like I am getting F'd

This seems to comply with every experience I've had with Pro Comp. They made absolute ****.

Your tire shop is the problem.

Go somewhere else and get your tires road force balanced. I have those same ****ty rims and mine are smooth as silk.

Have them balance the wheel first, Then mount the tire and balance the combo. I have had to do that a couple times oddly enough on pro comp 152street locks.

See some poeple know what they are talking about.RoadForce balancing is a joke and worthless for 33"+ tires.Not even supposed to try to balance big tires that way anyways,tears up the machine which costs $60,000+.
