Tire pressure is an opinion thing but the most u can run and tires still wear good the better the mpg. I have 35 in Mickey Thompson Mtz's and run 27psi. Anything over 30psi and I can feel it in the ride. Anything between 27 and 30 should've good.

Do the chalk test...draw a line, make sure it all shows on the road (not a faint or heavy line) when you roll forward and then that's the magic numbah!

I tried changing it to 28 psi but that didn't help much seems almost under inflated now, they were at like 33psi maybe I will change them back to 30... not sure. It isn't a bad wobble just a little something when I go like 45-50 mph. could it maybe be something else?

I would definitely do a quick rotate and check for those rings, that would Eliminate or confirm your most likely causes of your wobble.

I'm inclined to agree with the previous post about removing the retaining tabs on the brake rotor. Your new rims do not have provisions for them like the stock rims. There are two per wheel and if are left in place they won't let the rim seat flush against the rotor.

I re-torqued my lug nuts last night and good thing too cause a couple were pretty loose, but now they are all at 100ft/lb so it should be good. I think that may have fixed my slight wobble but I will find out today when I get goin faster on the way to work.

So torquing the bolts helped a little but now it feels like a little shakey in the front end. So it might be my tires or those things on the wheels. Ill have to try rotating them

Why havenít you checked to see if those retaining clips are still on? If they are and your new wheels have no cutouts for them then that might also be the reason some of you lug nuts loosened up; cocked wheels. Although not noticeable by the naked eye they would still be uneven just the same.

If you want to trouble shoot a problem then you need to take one step at a time and eliminate things starting from the very basic and easiest things and work your way to solving the problem.

Torqueing the wheel isnít going to fix a wobble unless they (lug nuts) are all loose which I doubt they were.

I just haven't had time yet. And I need to buy a new jack. I was using my dads but it **** the bed and doesn't like to stay up. What do the clips look like?

And those are on the lug nuts themselves? On each one or just one per wheel?

They are not on the nuts they are on the lugs. They will be twisted up tight to brake rotor. There will two to three per wheel end.

thats what I meant, the lugs not lug nuts lol I am going to try switching the left front tire too cause it feels like that is the culprit. this wheel also has the most weights on it. the spare has far less so I will swap them out and also look for those and see if they are on there. How do you take them off just pull?
