    Ok so i finally got my rims(pro comp 7089)and tires(bf goodrich 265 75 16) installed on my truck. Picked it up and drove it home and everything felt fine at first. After driving it for about 10 miles i heard a noise coming from drivers side front tire... it was a popping sound and i felt a slight vibration. Took it back to get it checked... technician test drove it, came back and told me the lug nuts had came a little loose so he re-torqued all wheels. I left and everything felt fine. Now i'm hearing a noise coming from the passenger rear wheel.... it's an annoying sound... sounds like there is metal to metal rubbing.... i checked it and can't find anything wrong with it??>>>>.. I think i'll drive it for a few more days before i take it back in to get it checked. anyone have any ideas or has had similar problems after putting in new wheels???? these noises were not present until i installed those new tires and wheels????... thanks in advance!!!

    Hard to tell, but are you sure they used the correct type of lug nuts for the wheels? Had that happen on a Jeep of mine and ended up with a wheel off. My .02 but I would go ahead and have it checked instead of waiting a couple of days. Last thing you want is a problem at interstate speeds or anything. Good luck.

    yes i did some research here on TW and purchased the correct wheels as well as the correct lug nuts!!! Just a little frustrated cause i spent quite a bit of money and hoped everything would be fine, but i guess things come up once in a while. Hopefully they can figure out what's wrong and fix it for me!

    it didn't have the correct lug nuts and that was the problem.. luckily i didn't loose a wheel on the freeway. The lug nuts that many some people mention here on website are the incorrect ones... after taking my truck back to the shop about 3 times, they finally decided to remove the wheels and see what was going on... in the process of removing the lug nuts most of the studs broke off and came off with the lug nut... I was not happy at all when I saw this because not only did the lug nuts have to be replaced, but also the studs. I guess the only good thing was that i did not loose a wheel on the road and caused a major accident. I was really upset at shop for allowing me to continue driving my truck in this condition after i took it back a few times and complained and i let them know how upset I was and they took care of getting me correct lug nuts and studs and take care of labor as well no charge. Never going back to that shop again... I know I provided the lug nuts to them, but they are the wheel & tire experts and they should have known better.

    My problem turned out to be similar except the tire shop supplied the lug nuts. when I brought them back the first time i asked if it was lug nuts, and he assured me it was that they needed to be re torqued , the second time he said the place I ordered them from didnt balance them so I paid to have them re-balanced. when I brought them back the next time with a handful of wheel wieghts he said maybe its the lug nuts:frusty: So i picked up a set of the procomp lug nuts and had them re-balanced a final time and finaly its all good.

    yeah that sucks.. well atleast you got your problem fixed too so that's good. It's crazy how some tire shops don't know which are the correct lug nuts.
