    Default Can anybody help me please ??

    I have had this slight wobble on my car ever since i have changed my alloys.
    My original 17's are perfect but the 19's wobble. I have had them balanced three times by different garage's who say they are fine but this never makes any difference. This is driving me . I have had new trackrod ends and other bits relating to suspension replaced but still the wobble is there.

    If a member that has 19's on would be happy for me to meet up with them so i could try there wheels on my car so i could test to see if my 19's are a issue OR my car does not like the bigger wheels on, i would be happy to travel within reason and i will get you a beer or two.

    Before the posts start, i have swapped wheels around and tyres and the tyre pressures are correct but i wonder if it is to do with me having to use spiggot rings on at the moment and my car does not like this.

    Thanks

    are you using the rings to centralise the wheels on the hub? Is the pcd 110 or are you using wobbly bolts?

    The rings are to be used to centralise the wheel and they are the correct ones. I do not need or use wobbly bolts as the fitment are correct.

    My car had a MOT last week done by the stealers and it pasted fine so hopefully no problems in that department.

    I wonder if the make of alloys are ******s to balance hence causing me this problem.

    could it be that one or more of the wheel's is slightly buckled, or the tyres are out of shape ??????

    Some are harder to balance, it could also be a bad batch of tyres

    Have you tried swapping fronts with backs PIMM (I know you said swap but not sure if that was back/front) – does it still happen?
