hello guys. i bought a new set of rims for my 2004 jimny. actually, this is the third time. i always ended up putting the stock rims.

anyway, whenever i put new set of rims for my jimny size 15, width 7 with tires pirelli scorpio at 215/15/75, i always experience wiggling whenever i reach 60kph and 120kph.

i already balanced my new set of rims and had it aligned but unfortunately, still the wiggling is still there. the first two set of rims that i bought were okay for me to dispose, but this new set of rims that i recently bought, it really looks good on my jimny and i want it to stay.

any idea how to remove the wiggling? someone told me to put a steering damper/stabilizer but when i had it checked, there was no space for it. please help.

You should verify the bolt patten is correct and that the wheels are centered on the hub. Usually aftermarket wheels have larger lug holes to accomadate different size studs and larger holes for the hub. You can get lug nuts that fill that gap or you could get a hub-centric ring that goes in the wheel and fills the space around the hub. If there is too much space the wheels could be off center and will vibrate.

hi there. i also own a jimny 2003 and also experienced the saame problems regarding tire wiggling when you change to a much wider rims. the first set of rims i put on was 15X7. i had to put a spacer in order that the rims wont hit the tie-rod ends unfortunately thats where the problem started. mechanics here in our country told me some suspension types especially the trailing arm type which is not independent cannot be balanced properly with a spacer in between. thats where the wiggling starts. i had to change to a much bigger sized rims(size16X7 with 215/65 tires) in order to get rid the use of the spacer. after that the wiggling disappeared.

"Hub centric rings" are needed.

Also worthy of note is that by going to a wider rim the forces on the wheels are amplified. The car will toe out more as you drive down the road causing wander. To combat this have the alignment set slightly more toe in. Noah
