I have a 95'chevy 4x4 tahoe. I added 22'dubs to the truck. And yes they are
balanced with that restrainer in the hub. Those wheels shake like crazy
when you hit a bump under 40 mph. I see other suv's with 22's, 24's and
some 26" rims. What is the secret and how do you stop that low speed
shakin. Thanks for your help. And you can also email me at
email@example.com. Thanks again.
It is caused entirely by the tires/rims. Notice the lack of sidewall
height? Guess which part of a tire acts as a cushion on a street driven
vehicle? Did you guess SIDEWALL, CORRECT... Less sidewall height means
more road input to the vehicle. More road input means MORE shaking and
rough ride. The other vehicles you see have the same problem, they just
don't admit it to anyone because that makes them look like idiots. Oh
and here is another little item for you, did you know that those tires
and rims probably made your Tahoe into a MUCH easier vehicle to roll
over now. Why? Because the tires probably have a much better grip now so
instead of the tires breaking free when the sideloads got high enough
they now grip until you flip. Oh and good luck trying to offroad with
those tires. One good rock or tree stump will break the rims, just like
the potholes in the roads will.
