centering dually wheels..

lets get serious here.. took me 7 hours today to try and align my rear wheels to be true... couldnt get them to line up perfectly and it was either one or the other out of whack... yes im using the conical lugnuts to try and get them centered..

is there any company that makes a centering ring for this crap??? i have one wheel thats slightly bent and the rest are perfect... im almost contimplating buying new wheels....

its almost bad enough that the axle looks bent... but its not... when i put one wheel and center it, its perfect... 2 wheels and its fooookked..

Are you putting the conical lugs in the concave holes, and one across from the other? If so, then you probably have a bent rim.

You also have to get your alignment pins on the hub lined up with the alignment holes in the wheels.

Buy a new steelie wheel to replace the bent one and enjoy.

ok, well they are out of whack again... the truck is an hour away, and i want to order hubcentric wheel rings to keep my rear dually wheels center to get rid of the stupid 60+ mph wobble... does anybody know the size of the hub on the dana 70 rear and wheel size too?? even better could i use electrical tape and go around enough to center the wheels that way??? anybody think of any other way to center then other than the conical lugs???

anyhow, im drunk, pissed off, and cant sleep... trucks driving me nuts... its eating up the new tires and gonna start really costing some cash if i dont get this taken care of soon... thanks

I have a 77 Dodge Class A motorhome that had the 8x6.5 17.5" dually wheels with the alternate concave/convex conical holes, and comes with the Dana 70 rear axle too. I replaced them with 19.5" GM dually wheels after I enlarged the hub holes and drilled the guide pinholes. The specs call for 325 ft-lbs for the 5/8 lugnuts and so I gave it as much as I could! So far they haven't loosened a bit! So check your lugnut torque.

The 325 lb-ft spec is for the the stock fixed-washer nuts on the Dodge. The conical lug nuts call for about half that. You got a Cummins in that MH? I saw one last summer that the guy transplanted in his MH, .... he was a high miler and really enjoyed the better fuel economy, ...

Not yet, I have a 440/727 there now. I recently bought 2 Rams (93 and 95) Cummins trucks and I plan to swap the 93's engine and the 95' trans/T-case and axle into the motorhome. It will be a 4x4 motorhome with a Cummins from a 93 (1st Gen Intercooled). the engine from the 95 is shot from overheating.

I have a slide in on my dually so I can tow my wheeling rig. 15.3 mpg in a house with a 7000# trailer on the back. Gotta like that.

It does have a bad vibration about 65. I suppose I should check my rears. I haven't had them off since I've owned the truck.

Hey ClassA4x4 that's exciting, .... I hope you'll keep your camera handy while you shoe horn that power train into your MH. Just getting the clutch hookup will make it unique among MHs, and you'll be able to win bets from other campers who won't believe it's 4WD!
