Front end shaking my teeth out when I brake

I just bought some 20" Momo wheels and they have toyo 305/50R20 tires. I bought them used I took them and had them balanced just in case. When I brake the front end shakes bad, the stock wheels were fine. I have a 06 Silverado crew cab if it makes a dif. Are the tires too big/wide?

Is your 06 Crew Cab a 1500, or a 2500? I run the same size on my 06 2500HD with no probs at all. I have 305/50/R20 Toyo Open Country A/T's on Ultra wheels.

I have a much easier time braking with my truck that my Wife does with the same tires only in 18" on her 1500 Suburban because of the brake size difference.

Bought my truck new from the dealer with 20's. Is your truck a 1500, or a 2500??? That could be making the difference in brake size.
The brakes on the 2500HD are awesome. I have never had better brakes on any truck. I have 88k+ miles on my 06 with the original pads. Had it serviced last week and the pads still are at 75%.:party:
Now that's what I'm talking about!:party: It's awesome how well mine stops even with the extra weight of the Duramax diesel:great:
1500 the stock/oem are 17"
I think that's the problem but maybe someone else in this community that runs oversized wheels on a 1500 might have some suggestions as to how fix your prob so you can skate on 20's. I would like to see some pics of your ride if you could post some.:great:
