My Experience with the Death Wobbles
I have a stock 98 TJ Wrangler with a 4 cylinder.
It had 235 /70 / 16 street tires on it, it drove great,
no wobbles, shakes, pulling, nothing.
Being a true Jeep owner I had to change things.
I bought a set of used tires and rims, size 31 x 10.5 x 15
in very good shape.
I put them on, go for a ride and have my 1st experience
with the death wobbles. (I'm sure it was a mild case)
I go back home get on the computer and start
searching info on the D.W.
Found a lot of good info.
So I decide I'm going to drive it 50 or 60 miles and let
the Jeep computer reset and solve the problem.
I pull it back in the garage pull all 4 tires, clean all
the dirt out of every little nook and cranny,
before I installed them the 1st time I cleaned them
but not really that good.
Then I wire brushed the surface where the rims touch
the hubs on the axles.
I also rotated the back wheels to the front, of course
put the front on the back.
I drove the exact same road and it drove perfect.
Just like it drove with the smaller tires.
That's my story on the death wobbles.
