What could cause front driverside vibration


Front driver side tyre out of balance. The balance weights used to be clipped on the rim, but with alloy wheels they a stuck to the inside of the wheel with double sided tape. Could be a bent rim if you hit a kerb in ice or snow.

What is the torque setting for my alloy wheels?


Your torque spec is usually based off of lug diameter, if you have 19mm lug nuts then 75#ft should be sufficient.

This problem is about our new Bridgeton tires (275 60 19) on the front of our 2000 Lexus SUV (LX 470). After about 500 miles the right front tire is showing unusual wear on outside edge of tread. At time...


wear to the outside of the tyre could indicate to a tyre specialist that the car recieves some serious cornering g-forces. but if this SUV is driven carefully then that should not have happened. when driving down a straight flat road let go of the steering wheel for just a second (make sure the roads empty first) and see if the car wants to lean to the right. it could mean you may have a wheel alignment issue. wear the the outside can also be possible if you are running your tyres on low pressure for extended periods of time (also does not sound likely if maintained) but if that is so you should see wear on the inside . there is also simply the fact that that tyre may be a bad batch from the factory in which case the tyre fitter will exchange it under warranty if he thinks that is the case. but my money is in the wheels alignment.

I have a 2006 tuscan with 27000 miles on clock.changed front tyres recently but they keep going down.went back to tyre shop & was told due to alloy paint coming off wheel, it is not allowing new tyre...


Doesn't sound right, unless wheel is damaged bent/cracked. A cheap fix would be "fix a flat" (sealer in a can) in each tire just as a safety precaution. Also check your tire valves sometimes tire shops don't get the valve cores tight.

VW Passat Estate on Alloy wheels with 235/45/ZR17 tyres. want to find winter tyre suitable for 16 inch steel rim for same vehicle. Steel rim is marked 61x2JX16H2


okay, 235 is the tread width 45 is the profile(the distance from the wheel to the road)ZR is the speed rating(over 120mph)17 is the wheel diameter.so to get the same tread width 225 would fit(cheaper than 235)45 needs to be thicker cos of 16" not 17" wheels and 1"=25.4mm 75 would be the choice.because winter tyres are designed for speeds less than 70mph "R" would be suitable.
all together 225/ 75(or 85) R 16.....SNOW TYRE/WINTER TREAD.
PLEASE LEAVE FEED BACK.

Every other week i'm getting flat tyres very unexpectedly. The tyre pressure warning light comes on but instantly the tyre is completely flat. Apparently its due to corrosion of alloy rims, how can i get...


Hi,

A temporary workaround/remedy is to put innertube inside the tire. Even if the alloy rims could not longer provide a good air tight seal, the inner tube would still hold the air. You may need to specify the tire size and width. Additionally, you may want to ask your tireman to likewise install a buffer of some sort between the innertube and the alloy rim. This is to prevent the any sharp portion of the corroded alloy rim puncturing the inner tube. Some local tiremen use a cutoff/old inner tubre as buffer.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Alloy wheels pitted and rusing


Hi have a nice day!
I think following article found to be interesting.
Most wheels on the market today feature a painted surface, machine lip or face with a clear finish. To take care of your alloy wheels without damaging the protective finish frequent washing with a quality car wash, such as McGuire's or Polyglaze, and water is highly recommended.
Periodic use of a bug and stain remover can prevent permanent damage, whilst waxing will protect the alloy wheel finish from the elements. NEVER use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or polishing compounds. ALWAY's be wary of automatic car washes. SOME use acidic cleaners to remove dirt and grime. Others may use stiff brushes for cleaning alloy wheels and tyres. BOTH of these WILL HARM your Wheels So always ask about equipment and procedures before entering the car wash.
Never allow your alloy wheels or tyres to be STEAM cleaned. Hot steam can dull the paint or clear coat finish on your alloy wheels. NEVER clean HOT Wheels always wait until they cool down. Water on your alloy wheels will dry faster on a hot surface and cause your cleaning solution to dry to quickly leaving spots or a film of soap on your wheels.
Cleaning wheels in direct sunlight also causes the wheel to dry out to quickly, leaving spot's in the finish. This is a particular problem with chrome wheels, and machined faced alloy wheels. Clean your wheels on a regular basis, they are often the dirtiest part of your vehicle and they're constantly exposed to the elements, corrosive brake dust, ocean and sea salt plus the inevitable road tar.
Disc brake dust is a BIG problem. If not REMOVED it can actually burn small marks into the chrome or alloy wheels, which in turn if left untreated can lead to PITTING of your alloy or chrome wheels. Chrome plated wheels are particularly susceptible if left untreated SO please make sure care is taken. Clear coating on your machine lip of face alloy wheels can suffer a similar fate if left untreated.
If you do not clean Chrome Wheels or Alloy Wheels regularly moisture, which harboured in brake dust and grime, can lead to SEVERE pitting and rusting of chrome wheel surfaces.
TAKE "PROPER" care otherwise your warranty on your Alloy wheels or Chrome Wheels could be voided.
