new rims
Hey guys just got the new rims installed right before work. It looks amazing but I'm at work so I cant take pics yet.

One question tho, In their test drive it was pulling to the right a bit. On the stock rims it was straight. I got it road force balanced im not sure what that is but they just put it on the machine and decided which ones should go in the back and the front from the printoff. They told me to get the alignment checked and if that isnt it then go back to them.

What is balancing the wheel, I didnt see them put weights or anything on the tires??? any insight on this would be great.

Re: new rims
if they are nice wheels they wont stick weights on the lips, check around the inside of the rim behind the spokes/face there should be stuck on strips if they put weights on.

an alignment should fix your pull without any further issues.

Re: new rims
ok,, but the alignment was straight on the stock setup. Can switching to 20 inch rims make the alignment off???

Re: new rims
it can, and sometimes it does. but if its pulling one side or the other 98% of the time its alignment.
