Hey fellas,

I am new to the forum and have learned alot from yall. Here is my 2009 Hemi QC 4x4. I just got tires and wheels today. They are305/55/20 Terra Grapplers and 20x10 Moto Metal 951s. I ordered a 2.5" Rough Country kit (praying no wobble). Hopefully, I will be able to get the lift on this weekend.

It looks fairly level there, but perhaps that is because of all the weight in the bed. It looks good though. I like the wide look. Do you think you will get flares or leave the sides bare?

They do stick out a lot. I would guess 2-2.5". I don't think I will put flares, I like when the tires hanging out. Just those little 33's made my mileage drop alot! I was suprised by that much. I will get back with ya'll on final numbers. No power loss though on the hemi. With those tires in the back it did drop the back a little. I am gonna put 2.5 up front with the 1.5 or 1.75 (whatever it is) on the back.

I think the tires need to be rebalanced or those idiots didn't take those clips that hold on the brake rotor. Will that make a difference?

Thanks fellas for the compliments. Lift just got here today (birthday present from the wife). I will be installing it this weekend on my birthday! Thats the best birthday present a man can get.

My light for tire pressure came on when I took the factor wheels off. Is there any way I can clear this? Also, by not taking the clips off that hold the rotors on, will that cause the front end to shake like the tires need to be balanced?

Just a small clip that slides ont he stud to keep the brake rotor from flopping around witht he wheel off? That won't cause any issues with balancing.

You might be seeing some issues due to lug centric vs hub centric when it comes to the new wheels.

What do I need to do about the lug and hub centric?

Did they put the tire pressure sensors on the new wheels/stems?

to balance them is a little different no matter what they say, i had mine done correctly and it works perfect


NOTE: This information applies to any model equipped with Chrome Clad Wheels.
DISCUSSION:
Models equipped with Chrome Clad wheels require specific piloting on balance equipment
to properly center the wheel and prevent damage to the chrome clad surface. The chrome
cladding is not removable or replaceable and has cladding tabs that extend into the wheel
bore. Traditional high-taper cones will come into contact with the cladding tabs rather than
properly seat on the hub bore chamfer. Many modern aluminum wheel designs cannot be
mounted with traditional cones. Direct-Fit Collets should be used to properly mount clad
wheels on balance equipment

I bought the tires and wheels used already mounted off of craigslist. I need the hub rings and tires probably need to be balanced. So, no I do not have the tire pressure sensors in them. Do I need to have the tires unmounted, balanced, and add the speed sensors?

^ If you want the dinging and the dash light to cease then yes! You can get a set of 4 for 100 bucks off ebay. Didnt do me much good with load E tires. Thing still does it because I run over 50 psi :(

When I think about it. It didn't go off until I took my old tires out of the back of my truck. I may just dismount the old tires and wheels, take the sensors out and stick them under the seat. LoL! Then it wont be dinging and I wont have to pay to remount and balance the tires.
