Help. I can't get the rims off of my 1991 Jeep Comanche. I bought a used set of rims at a junk yard and had a new set of winter tires installed on them , now I can't get the rims off of my tr


The factory aluminum wheels on Jeeps tend to become fused to the rotor and drum surfaces. A lot of can spray rust remover and a lot of tire kicking, after removing all the lug nuts, that will loosen up the bond between the wheel and rotor surface and the wheels will start to come off eventually, lots of kicking, alternating between the top and bottom of the tire.

Suzuki Escudo Jeep High Rpm


I am not familiar with Suzuki's but the first thing to check is that the throttle or throttle cable or throttle peddle are not sticking. With the engine off, ask a friend to press and release the throttle peddle while you look at the throttle to see if it moves. If it doesn't then you need to check each item to see which one is sticking.

What kind of tires should we get for a 2008 Jeep Patriot 4wd. It has Good Year P205/70R16, but we're not very happy with the tires. Do you have any recommendations? Can you put P215/65R17 on a 16"...


No, you sould stay with the recommed size for your vehicle. The 16" is the rim size. If you want a bigger tires and wheels you need to change your rims to 17". If you want good tires you want to look for something with a good rating.The original size for the vehicle is calibrated for speedometer and the ABS of your vehicle and so is you gear ratio in the trans and front and rear differential.

Fiat Spider wide rims


Check the clearance with your current tires. Turn your wheels as far as they will go and measure the gap between the rim and frame. Then measure the inside offset from your regular rims and subtract that from the inside offset on the mags.Compare that to the gap between your current rim and frame. If it is the same or bigger, the new rims will likely hit.
The best way to know for sure is to mount one rim and turn the wheel and see what happens. Hope this helps.

Looking at getting some rims of a suzuki sj413 to fit my 1990 suzuki escudo but unsure if they will fit?


The stud pattern is the same, but the offset is different. This will affect handling (steering), and may have legality issues in some jurisdictions. For a 2nd set of rims for offroad use, you wouldn't notice any problems. Just check clearances before forking out money.

SUZUKI ESCUDO N 4H 4H LOCK 4 L LOCK


I will assume you have the same thing as in a Suzuki Grand Vitara :
N : Neutral : use this when you tow your vehicle.
4H : Use it in normal road conditions, highway, etc.
4H Lock : Use it on offroad, snow, sand, ... etc
4L Lock : Use when you are stuck on snow or sand, BE CAREFUL, this mode is only for difficult situations, do not exceed 25 MPH, and do not use it in normal conditions.
Hope this help.

Power steering problems


Those Wheels are putting a Strain on the Pump. The Suzuki has not Compensated for the Installation of Larger Tires and Wheels and the Pump will only Handle the Factory Wheels. Notice how Light they are compared to the New ones. Not a Lot that can be done about this Problem.

Death wobble


My Death Wobble started immediately after I installed a set of Coil Spring Spacers (to lift 1.75 inches) on my stock 2005 Jeep Wrangler X. Turned out, the DW was because while changing the height, I also lowered the CASTER angle in the front end. So, to fix it, I could have purchased a set of eccentric bolts for $50+. Instead I went out and purchased a piece of 1.5 inch flat bar for $10 from OSH. I cut out 4 1.5 inch squares. Then i drilled 7/16 inch holes centerline, but close to one side (in exactly the same place) on all for squares. I then removed the lower control arm bolts, nuts and washers. I installed these square offset washers I made so the front axle would be pushed forward (to increase the Caster angle). The toe setting changed a bit, so I reset them to about 1/8 inch toe in. After driving my Jeep, I noticed there is no more DW. The steering wheel was off center, but after 3 attempts, I have that perfectly centered. I have every intension of having the alignment checked, but not till after I find the new tires I want. If anyone is interested, I can draw out and photograph the cure and send it to you. My e-mail is bb62471(at)yahoo(dot)com.
