KCrisp Firestone has some funny rules, they say to avoid legal liability. If you plug a tire on the trail and then take it to them to get fixed properly with dismounting and an inside patch they won't touch it. Their explanation is that your repair might be hiding other damage, which makes no sense since the plug can be pulled out from the inside and out and the tire inspected.

Right, but they may have a policy on that. Could just be something simple.

That was my thought as well that they are most likely not hub centric.

UnlimitedLJ04 we're gonna need a lot more information.

when's the last time the unit bearings were replace? u-joints in front? what rear axle do you have? do you have wheel spacers? ball joints worn? steering components worn?
