Sounds like the lug nuts are the wrong ones... If they are too short, they will bottom out and not pull the wheel tight to the flange.

2000 4.0l Sport, Auto, some mods done - planning more

Anyway we found out lug nuts were wrong thanks for info and also after we did that we changed out hubs also cause they had weights on them and they were rubbing also then it still was knocking then I took it by to mechanics friends and they both said axle bearings wer bad but both didn't believe they were bad at first I guess weight width of tire showed we're problem was thanks for info
