Did you service the caliper slide pins to ensure the caliper slides freely? A rusted pin causes vibration.

Also check your ball joints and ties rod ends for wear. New bigger rims can accentuate worn components.

Do your new rims include hub adapter rings to EXACTLY center the rims on the hubs?

Start by verifying that the timing belt has not jumped a few teeth. You may also have a vacuum leak or poor fuel pressure. Undo the gas cap and see if the problem goes away. If it does, the fuel pump may be worn out.

Its just a relay they are cheap try replacing it , if that does not work,look for a bare wire and replace it. Or simply run a wire from fuse box that is key on hot only into the hot side of fan connector and a ground off other side of connector. It sounds harder than what it is.This way it comes on when you start it and off when you shut the vehicle down.
