Ha, nice! That's what I was thinking but wanted to make sure.View attachment 4154071
Nope! Shouldn't make a difference at all. As a matter of fact, I'm putting on some new tires as I type, and my clips are gone as well.
The surface of your wheel is still flat against the drum. As long as your lugs are good, you should be too
You have so much new stuff under there.... alot of adjustments to be made. Did you balance your tires?
I'm now heavily suspecting the tie rod ends were blown. I took it off and could move the end joints around by hand pretty easily. Also the toe is definitely off again after one day of trail testing. I have a new TeraFlex HD Tie Rod coming in this evening!
So the tires...the online retailer balanced them before delivering. I choose the Balance Bead option because I was basically ignorant to their pros & cons. And I'm wondering if the beads could also be contributing to my wheel shimmy. That's why I'm rotating them now. If it still persists after the new tie rod and toe adjustment, I may have the beads removed and just use traditional weights.
