We have a new to us IH 1066. It had 10% rear 18.4x38 tires. When you drive in road gear, the right rear tire has a slight wobble in it. This is a vertical wobble, IE the tire and rim look like they are wobbling in and out. This can be seen by someone following the tractor. We have replaced the tires and still there is this slight wobble. Any ideas to fix the wobble? We don't wear out brand new tires early!!!! Is the wobble something to be worried about?

Thanks

My neighbors 1066 he bought a couple years ago had the exact same thing. He had to make shims to put between the axle and cast wheel to get it to run straight. It has the clamps and not the wedges and I think it wears if they are not tightened properly.

We got wedge lock centers. Tom do you think that it could have worn like that if the wedge locks didn't get set and tighten right? My uncle thought something like that. This will be a hay tractor and right now its on narrow rows, so we need to move the wheels out. Just got to find a wedge lock tool!!!

If the wheel (cast center) runs true the wedges probably are not tightened evenly. There are two driver lugs that get put 90 degrees from each other and are different from the rest of the wedges. I would guess that the wedges are not tightened evenly and are tweaking the rim a bit
Good luck

I have no idea, I have never messed with wedgelocks. I am sure others on here will know.

I'm betting NATE has the right answer here. If the wedgeloc wheels were run slightly loose long enough the axle bar or wedges could be wore enough for the wobble to be in the wheel. I would fix the wobble, maybe moving the cast center to a different place on the axle will cure it.

If the rim clamps are the source of the wobble, jack the wheels up, loosen the clamps, tighten them in a cross pattern starting at the top, then bottom, then left & right side, a little at a time while checking for wobble.

Thanks for all the insight!!! Guess I've got to try a few things to see what it is forsure. Even though we only travel 6-8 mile on the road to get to our other farms want to get it fixed. Now I got to find a wedge lock tool to get them loose. Will keep everyone updated when we get to it.
Thanks again

May sure all the little wedges holding the cast hub to the rim are aligned right.
