Default HPI RS4 3 Tire Wobble....

I recently installed new HPI Super Compound V-Groove tires on my RS4 3. It seems there is a slight wobble in the rear-left tire. Does anyone know how to even it out and correct the wobble.

Probably just how it was glued on. Otherwise not much you can do , except balance it on wheel or prop balancer. Thats why I love pre-mounted foam tires they spin perfect almost everytime out of the box. Its a nice sight to see. I hate wobbly wheels.

i guess i probably should have checked for a wobble before I glued them. __________________________________________________ _______________

BTW you can make a signautre in your user cp , so you dont have to copy and paste it every time.

Yeah should have checked them first , now youll never know if it was you or them. Most likely I would guess you can examine the wheel and see how its off. If its pretty wobbly most likely the tire , the rim shouldnt produce too much wobble.
