|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.|

|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|

Lousy pic, but heres the weights that are on them.

|orange05tj||doesn't have the sticky weights. They are attached to the rims. I hate the sticky ones, they always fall off.|
|03-01-2008 10:07 PM|
weights only on one side of the rim? wich such a big offroad tire?
itīs impossible to balance such a rim/tire on that way.
|03-01-2008 10:06 PM|
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".

|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 09:37 PM|
|orange05tj||I was thinking about doing that first thing tomorrow. I'll see what happens.|
|03-01-2008 09:36 PM|
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.
i have a ruNICOn sticker on my hood...

|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.|

|Scout||Looks good bro.|

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 09:14 PM|
|nicolas-eric||yes. IMO a full size spare tire is more important than faked beadlocks.|
|03-01-2008 09:11 PM|
|orange05tj||rather get my swing out tire carrier.|
|03-01-2008 09:10 PM|
|nicolas-eric||if you like the look of beadlocks, buy some real badlocks.|
|03-01-2008 09:05 PM|
|orange05tj||I do like them, but not sure if I want them. Kind of pricey for something that is useless.|
|03-01-2008 09:04 PM|
|nicolas-eric||i donīt like "wannabe beadlocks"...|
|03-01-2008 09:03 PM|
Im not sure about the bs. They are MT Classic II's. I got the gaurd from 4wd.com. Bolted up in 5 minutes.
I'm thinking about ordering the beadlock rings for the tires. Nice or too cheesy?
|03-01-2008 08:57 PM|
|bpowa||nice wheels how much back spacing? and where did you buy that front guard from?|
|03-01-2008 08:42 PM|
|nicolas-eric||thank you very much...|
