Hey guys i got a strange vibration at 70 k`s on the gq wagon after fitting some 80 series chrome mags to it , i did have to bore the centers and they have about 1/2 mm clearance , could this cause vibration ? i thought final location was done by the countersink in the whel nits ! When i first drove it it was perfect up to 110 but the missus says the wheel is shaking violently at 70 now just a day later ? got me stuffed .
any ideas?
thanks

Yeh the wheel nuts position it, Maybe get them balanced!! Rule that out first!

sorry guys forgot to mention yeah had them balanced , however they may have lost a weight as they were only stick on ones on the inside as the lip on the rim didn`t enable them on the outside , will have to check .

fitted new steering damper i had laying around , let tyers down from 45 psi (done at tyer shop after balancing ) to 35 psi and the wobble is almost non existant , always had a shimmy at 100 but only on freeway so will have to see some other time how that is , noticed front ph rod bushes are red!! gonna ditch them for rubber when i change all the other bushes in the truck .
