need some help

So I just traded with a guy on the forums for rims and tires. Really Long story short when I got back on the road the wheel was going crazy like I needed a balance, which I'm going to get this weekend, and there was one balded tired that seemed it was put on wrong because it said "inside" on it. Also two tires in the front are the same while the two tires in the back are not, I was thinking of matching the rear tires and leaving the fronts as they have almost new tread. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure the rear tires get balanced and have good tread on them because of the RWD. The tires with the most tread on them should also go on the rear.

It feels like the front tires are shaking the faster I go because the wheel shakes the faster I go

Sounds like you got ripped off by buying a bent wheel.

This may be a redundant question, but did you put the wheels on right?

Are these aftermarket wheels? If so, did you remove the little clips on the studs? Aftermarket wheels will shimmy because the little clip doesn't let them sit flat - you don't need it because it is only there to hold the rotor on during assembly. Ford wheels have a recess that the clip goes into so you don't get the shimmy.

You can see the clip on the stud at 1:00 in this picture. Just a little piece of metal that you can pull off

Since the clip doesn't let the wheel lay flat then yes it could create the shaking you are talking about. Take the wheels off, and use something like a flat head screwdriver to get the clips off.

Different clip you are thinking of. As long as your brakes are secured properly they should be fine.

No not the clip on the caliper. The clip on the stud for the lug nut at 1:00 - look at the rotor hat. Ignore the brake calipers and pads.

Notice the 5 studs for the lug nuts (at 1:00, 4:00, 6:00, 8:00 and 11:00), only one has a clip on it? The one at 1:00. It looks almost like a washer on the stud. That is what you have to remove so that your wheel lies flat against the rotor hat.

That vid i posted shows which clip to take off, it is kinda hard to see in the pic.

Then you shouldn't have said anything cuz you did make an *** out of yourself, its pouring down rain in Cali all week and I need my car to drive right, which is why I was asking if its possible to do it with the wheels on.

*** of myself? I'm in Cali also, and i can see the rain, but that had nothing to do with the problem at hand, which we were trying to help out with. The clip is behind the wheel on the rotor, there is no way to take off the clip without taking off the wheel. If you would actually think about it a little then you wouldn't need to ask that question. If you need to drive your car tonight then don't take off the wheels tonight and fix the problem some other time. Simple as that.

Thank you very much sir! You were very helpful as usual and I'll handle the clip when the rain stops! How's that 2013 treating you?

If you didn't realize that it was on the rotor then you should have said something... Obviously the picture and the video didn't show it clearly enough. But fine, i'll leave. No sweat off my back, one less person to worry about.
