Default Vibration...Method double standard
Ok fellas I'd like your thoughts on my vibration that I can't get rid of since I installed these wheels. I've had them balanced 2 times now to no avail. The vibration isn't bothersome until 65+...and at 75 it was unbearable...especially on a truck with less than 7k miles. I know that the tapered lugs and thr lug cintric design should center the wheel, however i know when they balance these wheels the hold on the wheel center not the lugs. Have any of you had similar issues?

1. I do still need to rotate...do you all think this may help?
2. Maybe if I loosen and retorque by hand during the rotate this will help?
3. Maybe I can run some hub-cintric Rings?
4. Can I even use a hub cintric ring with the center caps on these methods?
5. If I can use the rings does anyone know the hub diameter and the wheel ID, so I don't have to remove the wheel.

I will call Method today and ask these questions also.

had that problem with a set of centerlines. had to go to discount tire and they had a centering hub. it attached at the lug holes. so it centered the wheel as if it were on the truck. that is how it finally fixed mine. also they need to check the wheels for out of round.

Mine is at Outlaw right now, investigating vibration... and I just had the double standards installed a few months ago!

I need to bring this up, could be the wheels even if the machins is saying it's balanced! Where can you buy those Dyna Beads locally, anybody know?

Keep me posted on this as I purchased my wheels from outlaw as well. Method or outlaw needs to come to the table to get this fixed, as I have already spent the money to have my wheels balanced at 20/tire.

These may work but really don't drive to the root cause. I also don't know any shops that install those. And I hate going into these tire shops because often times they will say they haven't heard of them and that they don't want to install them.

Ehh I think method. It's not Outlaw, or any other vendors fault if Method sends faulty stuff.

Will these install by just removing and replacing the valve from the valve stem? Will they affect the tps?

Well it's there job to be the mediator as they are a vendor for the product. Outlaw needs to make sure that there is a fix or dump method if method doesn't come to the table. I have contacted neither at this point.

what tires are you running? could be a bad tire? I would think contacting Outlaw or Method direct would be the way to go, rather than posting on here and waiting for them to respond. They might not catch your post for days, in the mean time you trucks still going to be wobbling along.
