I agree with Hubcentric rings. That's usually the problem that people tend to overlook. Plus this is a cheap way to find out if this is why you're having this rattling issue rather than getting another alignment or tire balance.SHOOBOX said:IF you were not having this problem with the stock wheels then my guess is you need hubcentric adapters. Usualy aftermarket wheels come with a hub bore of 73mm the xB has a 56.1mm hub. You will need an adaptor for the wheel - usually the manufacturer/seller will provide it when you buy the wheels.
I can't believe that it is alignment if you had no problem before. If is is a balance problem, take them back and ask for them to be checked.
Yes, they should have but have them check.drac151db said:Well I bought the rims/tires from the dealer so maybe I should go back there and get them to check them. I really do not want to go back to the dealer because its a PIA! I figured the they were not balanced right anyway, I am glad though for everyone's input though. If I do need the rings, shouldn't the dealer have put them on when I bought the rims?
