I have a 69 impala that I put some 13's on and for some reason, my car shakes and vibrates a lot at high speeds. I never really noticed it but then I took it on the freeway and suddenly it felt like the whole car was gunna fall apart. Could it be that the wheels aren't sitting right? I don't ever remember it being like this before the daytons. Any suggestions?

Wrong, you can still go fast on 13's without having all kinds of vibrations, the wheels just need to be balanced (and maybe an alignment).
Going fast on 13's is just dangerous because it's very hard on the tires (heat, wear etc.)

:roflmao: :roflmao: :thumbsdown: :banghead: :twak: so this means you have never had wires and have no idea what you are talking about!!
i can ride at 90+ on my 13's in comfort, no vibrations, no probs, explain that 1!!!

look man, like already stated, get the balance checked, and alignment, and you should be good!!

if balancing ur tires and the alignment dont help check ur motor mounts or if u still havent balanced ur tires or did an alignment check ur motor/transmission mounts cuz if one of those is broken ur car will vibrate 2. to check them hold the brake pedal put the car in gear (D) and while still holding the brake pedal step on the accelerator and if the engine jumps alot that means u have a mount and do in ® also the same way but if it only jumps like about an inch than its ok.
