Sup guy! I recently put new wheels and tires on my Titan. I went with a fuel 12/20 with a 35in nitto trail grappler m/t. My truck does ride a lil rougher but my concern is that my steering wheel seems to shake a lot. They were speed balanced and mounted from the shop I bought them from. Is this a common problem?

Are the wheels hubcentric? I bet not cause they are fuels. Make sure they have the plastic centering rings installed on the wheels. If that's not the issue, swap front and back tires to see if a wheel/tire has a balance issue.

The response I got from the wheel place was that there are centering lug nut wheels. Does this matter or is he blowing smoke

they still should have the plastic rings. Fuel uses the "universal" wheels, they have two different sets of holes punched in them, and a hub bore that will work on different types of trucks. The hub bore is bigger then the titan size. If you take the plastic center cap off (two of the allen head bolts are functional) you should be able to see the axle nut (if your 4wd lol) and then the actual hub where the wheel contacts, is there room for a ring to fill the space between the wheel bore and the truck hub?


thats a terrible explanation i know.

A fuel retailer should be able to get them based off truck and wheel specs you give them.

I was able to get the dealer I bought them from to order some from fuel. They will be here next week. I looked at the center of the wheels yesterday day it prob a 1/2 in gap around the rim and hub ring or so. Also I did noticed at like a rolling speed of 5 to 10 mph the trucks kinda bounces a lil like sumptin is warped and it never did that with the other tires and rims I had on the truck. Would that be an indicator that it prob off center
