How much runout is too much?
I have some Falken Rocky Mountain AT/s tires (285/70/17 on JK Moabs). They have a bit of runout, and I know it is the tires because I "tested" them by placing each of the tires on the back axle, putting that on jackstands, and finally idling the Jeep in 1st gear.
The rim didn't have a hop.
The line near the tire bead didn't have a hop.
The tread has a hop to it, about 4mm (something like 1/8").
I have about 27,000 km (17,000 miles in American) on these.
What does the JF Brain Trust say is acceptable?
I know the obvious answer is "if you can feel a vibe then it's too much" but is there a spec somewhere? It seems that lowering tire pressure made the hop less apparent. Is that as good as it gets when it comes to mitigation techniques?
