Got the tires and wheels on today. Fuel 15x8s, 3.75 backspacing on 35s.. Truck drives good until you get 55+mph and the steering wheel shakes pretty bad. Also pulls to the right..So bummed about this!!!! Should I get hub centric rings for the wheels or rebalanced tires???

Sorry about the pics, took them with cell phone until I can get better ones.

Looks awesome, Tim!



Definitely have them rebalanced. Otherwise you've got other issues....such as bad tie rod ends or possibly ball joints. And alignment wouldn't be done if TRE's or BJ's being bad. That's when they'll be discovered.



Definitely paint that topper!!!! My guy locally here in Gresham did mine for $150 or 175. Even coated the inside with sealer to make it look half-way decent once the window is swung open!

Yeah they do make them in a 15x10. Having to get http://www.tradeunion.com/old/HTML/T...ubcentric.html to stop the vibration in the steering wheel. Also going to have the tires rotated after they re-balance them to stop the pull to the right.

Ummm what? Ranger's are lug-centric.


Best bet is to keep having them balance them. Toyo M/T's, while heavy, balance out very nicely with the right technician. Could be possible you've got a bad tire (out of round). You shouldn't have a pull to one side or the other. A very small steering wheel shimmy is normal with mud terrains. If the rebalance doesn't help much, I'd start looking into wore out outer tie rod ends.


Apparently when I bought my Eagles last year, the Fuel's in 15x10 weren't available. Big disappointment there. I'm in love with these and similarly styled wheels now. lol.
