Default Hub rings/vibrations

I was just wondering if anybody with 09 or 10 trucks that have aftermarket rims had any problems with vibrations and if so did u have to get hub rings and did it fix the problem? Any help would be appreciated....thank you.

Are you talking about the balancing rings that bolt to the hub?

I think so they call them hubcentric rings, i believe they go in the rim opening and slip over the hub, they are so make it so they balance better and reduce vibrations, i got new rims and have had vibrations ever since.

Ok, we're not talking about the same thing and I didn't realize you have aftermarket rims. I think the source of your problem is going to lie either in the hub or the wheel itself and those rings won't help you. Your stock wheels were hub centered, meaning that the center on the protruding part of the hub. Your after market wheels are made to fit any vehicle with the same lug pattern and the hole in the center of the wheel has to be larger to accomodate multiple vehicles. This means you now have lug centered wheels. If there is any imperfection in the wheel or hub, you'll get a vibration you can't get rid of. There is also the possibility you have some radial runout in the tires unless they were road force balanced at the time of installation.

well i had the hub rings put on and it didn't make a difference. I've been back three times because i have a vibration. All three times they had to rebalance tires. For some reason the tires keep coming out of balance. I am not sure why. I know that they use the hunter balancing machine. One of the times the rim slipped. Any ideas why the tires would keep coming out of balance. Any ideas would help....thank you.

I forgot to add that for the first few days that i had the new rims on the truck, it rode nice and smooth. I found some of the wheel weights in my driveway and ever since it has not drove the same.

Does it seem to get worse when braking . It's been a real issue for the past several years with mechanics impacting the lug nuts too tight causing brake rotor warpage . I snug up the lug nuts with a impact , then use a torque wrench for my final tightening process .

Well went to the rim store again, after the fourth attempt to get rid of the vibration, they were once again unsuccesful. they are going to order me a new set of rims on monday and if that doesn't work then they are going to get me a new set of tires as well. Hopefully that works. The rims are the black xd spys. I really like the wheels, just need the truck to ride the way it did before.

"Mechanics" that tighten lug nuts with an air gun and no torque wrench or "Torque Sticks" on their guns are hacks.

In this day and age, it takes very little to warp rotors by over tightening.

The right tool for the job makes every difference in the world.....
