Default 2005 Aftermarket Wheel Problems????

I have a 2005 Taco, and am now on my fourth set of aftermarket wheels. The wheel shop, MTO Suspension, kept ordering the wrong bakcspace, offset, etc. Now, the last three sets have vibrated like crazy at about 55+MPH, and no one knows whats wrong. It ain't balance, it ain't tires, and it ain't the truck. Then what the heck is it??? Now running 16x8 Eagle 146's, but I have been through 058's, 186's, and 187's before these. One set did not clear the caliper, and three shake like crazy. Back to the OE wheels, and shaking stops. SAME Tires on all. Any one else fighting this or is it as my wheel guys is trying to say: "Aftermatket wheels sometimes just do that."

I am running some cheapy pacer wheels and never had any issues besides the caliper clearance. 5 minutes with a grinder fixed that...

Actually, it's because you're missing the tire inflation monitor sensors in the wheels. This is why Toyota put them on the 06's.... to balance out the wheels.

OEM Toyota rims are hub centric. I dont know if putting lug nut centric wheels on a truck designed for hub centric wheels would matter. Maybe it does???

thanks-talked again with American Eagle and he says he will get some hubcentric rings coming for the truck. I am now using lugcentric lugs, but that is apparently not enough. Watch out for new wheels!!!

Lug-centric wheels will work fine. Just make sure that the place that balances the wheels/tires uses a lug-centric adapter (an adapter that the wheel mounts but using the lug holes and lug-nuts to attach, then the adapter is attached to the balance machine). If the used the hub-centric adapter (the cone that goes through the center of the wheel to hold it to the machine, without any adapter bolting to the wheel) you will have a vibration. It doesn't matter how many times they try to rebalance the wheels/tires or what wheel you are running.

You best be is to get them to use a lug-centric adapter and balance the wheels on a road-fore balance machine. If you do this your vibration problems will most likely go away. I know it solved the vibration problems on my truck.

any idea what shops have the lugcentric adapter? Cheyenne is not a large town, but I have access to most national chains in Northern Colorado.
