Default Wheel Spacers causing severe Wheel Wobble

Hey All,

Just thought I would pass on this little bit of info regarding spacers... I had small spacers on my 09 1500 slt so I could get 35's on it without having to worry about rubbing. Without the spacers, they just barely cleared, but with them, I had lots of room to spare. I had found that between 80-110km/h I had a wicked Wheel wobble on the front end. I took it to a local tire shop and they pulled the spacers off and presto! NO WOBBLE!!!! They told me that this is a commmon problem with all cases of Wheel Wobble on any vehicle. If you can get away with not using them, DON'T.

Have a good one Guy's and Gals

The better question here would be why were the wheel spacers causing the wobble?? were the spacer not a perfect machine surface or something?

Noy sure... I got a loooooong winded explaination about how the factory rims require a perfect marriage between the rim and the hub. The slightest bit of dirt or debris could cause them to fall off balance thus resulting in wobble. Doesn't make a huge amount of sence to me, but all i know is, once they came off the wobble was gone baby gone!
