The lever on the quick release skewer goes on the non-drive side of the bike.

I have Toyota 2006 sienna and front right wheel shakes or wobbles ... I have new front tires and balanced.. but still wobbles a little...please any thoughts?


Hi Scott.
Try switching the wheels from left to right side and see if the wobble goes with it.
If not, look for a worn tie rod end or other suspension component.
If wobble goes to left side, look for bent rim.
Cheers.

Correct wheel placement?


I`ve only seen 2 cars that require the tires to be installed in a particular spot. usually because the tire width was different from front to rear and would not allow the wheel to be turned to full left or right. also some tires are designed to work in a specificate location due to load and traction under certain conditions. these cars are an early Camaros(80s) berlanet and corvettes. so these tires you have were designed and made to work in these spots.

I hit something very hard with my right front rim. the tire now rubs the wheel well. What have I bent =, dammaged ect.?


Depends on what you mean by rubbing on wheel well?

if the wheel is bent inwards, so when the steering is set straight ahead, the damaged wheel is angled inwards or outwards then the tracking arm is bent!

if the wheel well has dropped on the damaged side then it probably is the suspension!

After removing the front lug nuts and small center nut , i am not able to remove the wheel and tire


in past experience I've seen the center of the wheel actually rust or just from normal road grime stick to the hub I had to kick the outer edge of the rim if that don't get it loose dictating on the kind of rim you have can use a pies of wood so you don't damage the rim but put the wood against outer edge of rim and hit it with a hammer will have to go back n forth from left to right side of wheel but it will come loose

please keep in mind this only works if all lug nuts are indeed off the center nut you was talking about does not hold the rim in place it hold the axel tight in the hub, which I am assuming you have a front wheel drive vehicle due to your question

Front Wheel Allignment


On these LH body cars, camber is not adjustable. Neither is caster. Those angles are preset by the suspension geometry. However, specifications for them ARE published. Generally, if either of those two parameters are out of spec, then it's likely something is worn or damaged and needs to be replaced.

The only adjustable parameters are to the front and rear toe but specified as "Total Toe" - see note below.
The alignment specs are as follows ...

ALIGNMENT SPECIFICATIONS AT VEHICLE CURB HEIGHT
A. FRONT WHEELS
  1. CAMBER
    Acceptable -0.6° to +0.6°
    Preferred +0.0°
    Side to Side Differential
    Acceptable 0.7° or less
    Preferred 0.0°
  2. TOTAL TOE - Specified in degrees. See Note Below
    Acceptable 0.4° in -to- 0.0° out
    Preferred 0.2° in
  3. CASTER* (reference angle)
    Acceptable +2.0° -to- +4.0°
    Preferred +3.0°
    *Side to Side Caster Difference not to exceed
    Acceptable 1.0° or less
    Preferred 0.0°
B. REAR WHEELS
  1. CAMBER
    Acceptable -0.6° -to- +0.4°
    Preferred +0.1°
  2. TOTAL TOE** - Specified in degrees. See Note Below.
    Acceptable 0.2° out -to- 0.4° in
    Preferred -0.1° in
    **TOE OUT when backed onto alignment rack is TOE IN when driving.
  3. THRUST ANGLE
    Acceptable -0.15° -to- +0.15°
Note: "Total Toe" is the arithmetic sum of the left and right Toe settings. Positive is Toe-in. Negative is Toe-out. Total Toe must be equally split between left and right wheels. Left and Right Toe must be equal to within 0.02° (2 one hundredths of a degree).

How to do a wheel alignment


nearly impossible but there are some things that you can do to reduce tyre wear.. 1---place the wheels in the straight ahead position. Using a spirit level place it vertical across the front rims touching only the rim top and bottom . adjust to achieve the bubble just touching on the outer line. That should give you about 1/2 to 1 degree camber. next measure with a tape the distance between the left and right rims 1/2 way up on the front of the rim. Record this measurement. Repeat the measuring at the back of the front rims at the same level as the front measurement was taken Adjust the tie rod ends evenly until the front measurement is anout 1/8 to 1/4 " smaller than the rear measurement. This is the toe in/ out measurement. The caster adjustment you will need a caster angle gauge. They are available and they stick on the hub center. and measure the difference in degrees from full left to full right turn. It need to be about 1 to 1&1/2 degrees positive.. It would be cheaper on the tyres to have the alignment done professionally and a sight quicker.

THE LEFT SIDE OF THE HANDLE BAR SEEMS TO BE HEAVY THAN THE RIGHT HANDLE BAR.. SO I CAN FEEL THE INBALANCE WHENEVER I RUN THE CB IN THE HIGHWAY...


Lift the bike off the ground (front end), turn steering side to side, should be smooth all the way (not notchy), check your tyres both front and rear, uneven wear, warped rim, should spin freely and true (wheel bearings) than check for fluids on your fork legs, your front fork seals may be leaking or the oil may be due for a change!!

Question on rims on a 1988 IrocZ28. the front rims have a stamp on them indicating 'front' and the back rims 'rear'. the tire size that came on the car when I bought it are P245/50/R16 (96T-mts). Im pretty...


Those wheels are what is referred to as "staggered" meaning different sizes front and rear. If you measure the width of the wheels the rear ones will be wider. I'm not sure what size you are supposed to be using but the rears should be wider. This kind of setup is not designed to be rotated. You could rotate side to side but this won't even your wear out.
