Default Re: Help::Alloys on zen, performance and mileage change?

learnt the hard way that track extension spacers give a lot of wobbling!
Its actually the balancing, the same way as one balances the mass on the tire radially, the spacers to need a good mass balance, and any local workshop just cannot do it very well. They just machine it for a perfect round, weld it on with the screws and jack it on! Rest is your luck. The bearings got screwed, steering bushes got bad and wobbling at 100+ speeds was common.
If at all we had a quality wheel spacer vendor at bangalore,who knows the science of mass balance!
