Re: wheels causing wobble!? (Mach_T5)

<B>most </B> after market wheels aren't hubcentric to any particular application and NEED hubcentric rings. My Evolve wheels required them. I accidently put one on without rings and it made noise , best bet get those rings!

Check to ensure that you have no mud in your wheels. This is always the first thing to look at. It can get in there and cake on and dry and cause a wobble.<p>Next check each wheel individually to make sure the wheel weights are still on there. If they aren't, one probably fell off and put your wheel out of balance. Go to a tire shop and have them fix it.<p>Now break your lugs and put the car in the air. Give the front wheels a shake. Any excessive movement means you probably have a ball joint or tie rod that needs replacing, or some other issue. A<p>Take each wheel off and check the tire tread and the wheel.... look for anything out of the ordinary such as bad tread wear, bent wheel, etc.<p>Put the wheel back on and make sure that it's on there properly. Torque it evenly with the car in the air, to spec (62 ft lbs).<p>If none of those helps you to find anything obvious, go to your favorite tire shop and have them look it over for something you might have missed.

Re: (jdsr917)

Are you using after market wheel nuts. The Volvo nuts have the wrong size diameter and taper for normal rims.<p>This fixed my wobble instantly.

eep.<p>Get the alignment done as soon as possible. You could be running down your tires. Putting it off will only cost you money, and doing it might fix your problem!

That will cause all sorts of driving imperfections, especially if you don't have the rear camber arms on.

Re: (40 Rouge)

Alignment should have been done after being lowered for certain... I torque my aftermarket wheels in the air thus technically centering the wheel and still have a shimmy. Ive yet to install hub rings but still feel that they probably wont fix my issue.<p>Verifying that the wheels have been properly balanced is also important. Cheap tires can also effect how your vehicle reacts to the road.
