birdkilla2k1 yea i hear ya there, maines the same way, i have the 54" wilderness front bumper on my jeep, and i had to get the license plate bracket that slides into the front least that gives it a fair amount of rigidity lol

I just hate how big the stupid things is. Thats why I always kick them until they wrap with the bumper. If I didn't need a front plate, it would be in the garbage.

Did you paint those yourself or order some like that, I've been wanting those on my T.J. for a while now.

orange05tj Good point trip. As you can see, the washeres that came with it are the same size as the nut. I'll look into doing that.

Looking good though. Love them sliders.

slf41002 Those aren't weights for steel wheels they are for aluminum wheels they just aren't the coated weights and all that really means is over time they will cause corrsion to build up under them and eat at your wheel were the coated weights are a light gray powder coat to protect the wheel more..It isn't impossible to static balance it is just a little harder to get them dead on.Normally after static balanceing if you kick it back over to the both side setting it will be an even number off (0.50 - 0.50) but most of the time I get 0.00-0.00
03-01-2008 11:15 PM
orange05tj Lousy pic, but heres the weights that are on them.

No its not. With a GOOD balance machine you can get it very well balanced with only inside sticky wieghts.
03-01-2008 11:09 PM
orange05tj doesn't have the sticky weights. They are attached to the rims. I hate the sticky ones, they always fall off.

Scoob The shake sounds like a wheel balance problem. Look for a place that has a Hunter Road Force wheel balancer in your area. I hate to say it but the guy is right. You will get a much better balance with a kind of weight that attach to the rim on both sides instead of the kind are stickied to inside only. However this does not mean you cant get it balanced out with the sticky ones, it will just be harder on the tire "tech".

Mickey Thompson Classic II's have a backspacing of 3 5/16"

nicolas-eric i had also hat that after i was wheeling some weeks ago. there was to much mud on the inside of the rims. the whole front shaked at 35-45 mph that much that i was afraid that something could become damaged.
03-01-2008 10:37 PM
orange05tj I was thinking about doing that first thing tomorrow. I'll see what happens.
03-01-2008 10:36 PM
nicolas-eric @orange05tj:

does the steering wheel shake at 40-45 mph? that sounds like unbalanced tires.
try to put th rear tires on the front. perhaps they are balanced better.


hey stop...!
i have a ruNICOn sticker on my hood...
03-01-2008 10:28 PM
bpowa i did not know they made poser beadlocks. ghey. thats like putting a rubicon sticker on the side of your hood, but way more expensive.
03-01-2008 10:23 PM
Scout Looks good bro.
03-01-2008 10:21 PM
orange05tj yup.

question. I never had any wobbles with my 32's and now with the 33's, I have a wobble at from 40-45 mph. Took it to the shop, did alignment and it still wobbles. Guy there told me they used weights for steel wheels and that I should re balance the tires. Speeds over 45 are fine. I don't want weights on the outside of the rim, but they told me thats a true balance. Should I live with the wobble, or bite the bullet and have them re balanced hoping that it helps?
03-01-2008 10:14 PM
nicolas-eric yes. IMO a full size spare tire is more important than faked beadlocks.
03-01-2008 10:11 PM
orange05tj rather get my swing out tire carrier.
03-01-2008 10:10 PM
nicolas-eric if you like the look of beadlocks, buy some real badlocks.
03-01-2008 10:05 PM
orange05tj I do like them, but not sure if I want them. Kind of pricey for something that is useless.
03-01-2008 10:04 PM
nicolas-eric i donīt like "wannabe beadlocks"...
03-01-2008 10:03 PM
orange05tj Im not sure about the bs. They are MT Classic II's. I got the gaurd from Bolted up in 5 minutes.

I'm thinking about ordering the beadlock rings for the tires. Nice or too cheesy?
03-01-2008 09:57 PM
bpowa nice wheels how much back spacing? and where did you buy that front guard from?
