Im new at this so hang with me. all i know is they are Mas ital sagittas.... 17 X7.5 dont know about offset i guess i have to find out . No modifications at all .. tires are 215.45.17 i wanted 225s but not available. Im thinking of trying the same tires one more time but in a 235 45 17 <br> i have dome everything to clear the shimmy ,but it boils down to swap the rim/tires .it goes away .but them back on its back .....

yes but ......

it was put on one of those measuring machines, but they (discount tire) told me due to the rim design turning the tire wont help much ??. I dont have the measurements If you spin the wheels you can see it hop a little ... I just dont know how two differnt front sets could be out of round......<br> i have hubcentric rings on the hub too. my rims arent bent unless they came from the factory imperfect which I doubtBTW of set is 35 or 40 according to the MAs italy folks<br> <br> thanks ..<br> <br>

your first move should be to find a company with a GSP9700 Hunter balancer

you can find one close to you using Hunters web-site<br> <br> www.hunter.com

already did and.......

thats the machine i used at discout tire. I dont know the measurement but i know it wasnt out too much out of spec (according to them) the guy said twisiting the tire around wont help ... due to the way the rim is designed. i mean it's a basic rim .... spoked with about a 3/4 inch dish
