Default Steering wheel shake with new setup...

Hey all,

Just installed some 20x9's and 20x10's with 275/35 and 295/35 respectively. The tires are Nitto Invo if this helps.

I've noticed a slight steering wheel shake in the car. It's not related to speeds as I do notice it at low speeds, too. It doesn't really get that much worse at higher speeds, but obviously more noticeable.

I haven't really "broken" the tires in yet, but I have about 150 miles or so on them.

I know what out of balance wheels/tires feel like, as when I get snow in mine the in the winter, the car clearly starts to get the shakes. This is entirely different. I feel it ONLY in the steering wheel. I can hold the dash, doors, seats, etc...nothing. Just in the steering wheel.

My first attempt (this weekend hopefully) will be to swap the wheels on the front, left to right and see if this helps. I may even just put the fronts on the rear and my factory wheels on the front and see if I can notice anything.

Any help is appreciated.

Make sure the lug nuts are up to torque spec as they can back off after initial installation.
Other than that, possibly a defective tire or wheel. Take it back to the tire dealer.
Sorry I don't have any more ideas.

You need to take off the rotor clips on all 4 corners before mounting aftermarket wheels

Sorry, I should have stated that I have done this before, many times on other vehicles.

For the record, yes, the clips are gone and the wheels were torqued again after my first 100 miles.

I may just have to get them balanced again...

If your wheels require hub centric rings, make sure they are installed correctly and are the correct ones. You can also check to make sure the tire beads are seated correctly on the rim, if not the tire will need to be reseated and rebalanced.

Also, some tires are uni directional and are required to run in one direction. So it is not recommended to switch tires from the left to the right. Check for directional arrows on the sidewall of the tire.

NO, the stock wheels have a ( cut out) for that clip but you should remove it.

Hey Katastrophe,

Please get your vehicle checked out at your dealer as soon as possible and make sure to contact Ford Canada at 1-800-565-3673. Let me know the outcome.

Please bring your vehicle in to your dealer to have it checked out and speaking to your Service Manager about this, rfsmith. He/She is in the best position to look into this for you. He/she can check into any warranty, assistance, recalls, or Customer Satisfaction Programs that may apply to your vehicle. Let me know the outcome.
