Front End Wobble AND Centramatic Wheel Balancers?
I bought some tires (235/75R15 Michelin XCX/APT) and ssc rims (sears 15" #73) and had them balanced and mounted at the shop. I still get this wobble in what I think is the front end. It starts at 45MPH and I can feel it shaking through the stearing wheel. When the stock rims and tires (GoodYear Wrangler 215/75R15) are on it's fine. I called sears where the rims were originally bought and he said I didn't need the Centramatic Wheel Balancers. I'm not sure whats going on becasue it's fine with the old tire set. Also, it was suggested that maybe I need a nut that has an extension that goes in to the rim but sears said the spec'ed ones where the acorn shaped ones that I have on there now. I used the search function here and found some things to look at but because there is know wobble with the stock set of tires I wasn't sure if those fixes applied. Anyone have any specific insight to this type of wobble?
the tires are most likely not balanced correctly. I would take them back and have them rebalanced, or rebalanced at a different shop. even a tire that is a little off balance can cause wobble in the front end.
I've had the Centramic wheel balancers for a few months and they don't eliminate the wobble but they have smoothed out the ride in the tires so for me they do work. The balancers would more of a last resort or you could use beads in the tires as well.
