Niche Targas shaking

Just got the black niche targa 20" staggered on my car. They look absolutely awesome. However, once I hit 40 mph, my steering wheels starts shaking terribly. The tire shop supposedly mounted and balanced, but something is obviously not right. What do you guys think it is? And also I got Sumitomo 285/30/20 and 255/35/20. Will I need to go get my gauges recalibrate? Thanks guys!

Iv worked in tire shops for 4+ years it's a balance issue lol it's a pain in the *** to balance low profile tires and 20 inch wheels. Should have them road force the tire (if possible) while on balancer

Be sure to take the retaining clips off the car when u change the wheels out. They'll be one on each hub.

Mine had to be rebalanced 3 times before they were acceptable.

Before you do anything else check this. The retaining clips are just used for assembly to hold the rotors on and the stock wheels have a recess to clear them Aftermarket wheels don't have one usually and that small clip is enough to cause the shake.

I put my drag wheels on and the first pass had the shakes - then remembered that I hadn't removed the clips. So jacked the car up, pulled those off and put the drag wheels back on. No more shaking.

I had the same issue. Had to have them balanced twice before it was fixed. First time balanced i took their word, second time i watched from start to end the entire process. Funny how it was fixed second time. Sometimes you got to INSPECT what you EXPECT.

Niche Targas shaking

I've had my rims rebalanced 3 times at the dealership, and my steering wheel still shakes a little in around 40-60 mph. I removed the retaining clips today and I can still notice the steering wheel shake.

U may have imperfections in either
Your wheel or tire then. Meaning they're not perfectly round or something. Mine are the same way. I've never had aftermarket wheels that didn't shake some

Yep... I bet so many people do this... take it to a shop... shop says.. oh yeah we rebalanced them... charged them for the balance and all they did was pull the clips off for the person!

All of my shake was also from the clips...I was so excited to put my new wheels on I didn't even think about taking them off. Needless to say the first drive sucked it shook horribly. Pulled the wheels back off removed the clips and solved the problem

I wonder if I need a alignment for that. My car got its lower control arms changed with a heat shield, since it's suspension work maybe it needs it. My car goes straight, it just shakes a little.

Could be the difference between the wheel being hub centric and lug centric. OEM wheels align to the hub and are machined to fit perfectly centering themselves every time (hub centric). Aftermarket wheels many times are not machined to match the hub, and instead rely on the conical shape of the lug nuts "center" the wheel.

If not torqued in proper sequence, this can result in the wheel being off center from the hub, which will cause the wheel to shake. A solution on other applications is hub centric rings, which will allow the aftermarket wheel to align on the hub. Or just remove the wheel and re-torque the lugs in sequence and cross your fingers.

All good suggestions, but the OP hasn't come back to say if he used any of them?

I would do the simple one first. If the clips haven't been removed from the rotors then do it and check to see if that fixed it. If you don't do that first then you may be tossing away money chasing things. 99% of the time this simple thing is the problem

Sucks about the problems your having, but let see a pick of those bad boys when you get the chance. I really like those wheels.

That was my first thought, rotor retaining clips.

After reading this thread I popped off my RTR's and found that I still had my retaining clips. Never had any issues with them on, but I took them off anyway.

Appreciated the info on this forum.

Hope you all have a great 2015!

So after two visits to the tire shop to get my wheels balanced, they still shake. The shop said I needed to order hub centrics for my wheels? Said after market wheels only fit the hub correctly 1/4 of the time. I've never heard of this before. Do you all know anything about this?

The only after market wheels that have shakes for me were the AMR's.

Same here. Actually I had my wheels rebalanced 3 times and there's still shaking on my steering wheel. I'm going to buy the hub centric rings and see if that fixes it.

Did you check for the clips and make sure that they were removed? That was all it took for my Race Stars to quit shaking.
