First, dont start flamin me!

Aight, i aquired a set of used 22s with tires for my regal
i put em on, happy as hell they look soo good..

i knew already one of the rims had a bad tire patched with fixaflat

after putting em on and driving for a while i notcied it was unbearable to drive at excess speeds of 39 or more the car would shake like a motherfucker!! dangerous to even drive!

so i kept my speeds at a minimum on the way back home

so im nearng home and i hear a weird light clapping sound comin from my back rear rim (the one with the hole)
I stick my head out and notice the whole wheel looks like its about to come off because it had a horizontal wobble to it.. so i slowed down reallll slow..
jacked it up to see if some lugs came off or somthing.. everything was tight
i tried to hand wobble the wheel but wouldnt budge (even in nuetral)

so im scared the axle is bent or something worse.. or maybe the rim is completely fucked..

ideas?? THANKS!

feel me

jack your car in the air from the rear diff

take both wheels off take both adapters off

fasten the lug nuts back on the drums so they are secure and tight

carefully start car put in drive let the axel spin look at the studs and if they spin straight all is fine wheel is fucked

if the brake drums spin crooked axel is bent


if the car was spinning straight before you put rims and all you did was drive home with bent rims my feeling is you did not bend axel

i think you got a bent wheel

let me know

naw, i was basically testing the ride and what i needed to modify to safely drive.

damn, i aint askin to get dogged out here, im here to get some professional advice.

i put the original wheel back on and its not wobbling. i see a very slight slight wobble but i think thats normal..

good luck

but my advice is amatuer not pro buy any means

just common sense , what i said is how i would diagnose whether it's the car or rim

it might even be a bent adapter but i doubt it

anyway you will get to the bottom of it , like you said when you got time
