Death wobble or tank slapper. How to fix tire wobble? Maxxis High Roller exo dual compound tubeless ready 10-06-2015 7 bholwell mtbr member Reputation: Wobble all over the place. Several 4x4 vehicles have been brought in with serious handling problems at highway speeds when the suspension was in perfect condition but massive tires were installed. Caster in a roundabout way generates tracking stability. The oversize tires may require stiffer control of the A-frames and plastic may be needed.
If not, the flat spotted tires will have to be replaced. I think when I landed I may have flattened the rim ever so slightly.
Shogun - rear view issue... What happens here is that a loose suspension component can allow the front end to start wobbling, like when you hit a bump, and once the wobbling starts, you have to slow down, or even stop to correct it.

Then rotate the wheel and measure the amount of deflection. Without going into the history, we will simply explain the types in common use today, and when you would use one method or another.
You can put new tires on it, but unless you have the rear of the vehicle aligned, it will just be a matter of time before the new tires are cupped also.
