I know I'm posting this in the wrong forum

But I need help on this. I have a clk 320, 2002 and a set of limited rims. I have had them balanced 3 times. to no avail. I was told I needed hub centric spacers or hub centric rings. Which would you guys buy. And are the spacers on the front the same as the back? If I use hub centric rings do I even need the spacers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

if they are not bent. I would go with the hub-rings, unless they rub. then go with the spacers.

Are you sure this is the wrong forum?

go see Keith at Ken Towery Firestone on Nicholasville Road [just inside New Circle]. He will know what to do. He is the best wheel balancing guy in town.

If the rims are bent, they can't be balanced. Otherwise, you need a better balancer as suggested above. Try America's Tire.
