New 18's causing a knock


I fitted a set of 225/40/18's to my 156 a couple of days ago and I now have a knocking noise coming from the left front wheel. It is worse at around 60mph and when I corner. Any ideas?

Hate to sound obvious, but I'd re-check the nuts / bolts again first....

Or stick on weight coming off gradually and catching somewhere?

IF they are aftermarket ones make sure the spigot ring is in properly, the wheel will "wag" otherwise

if not you got buggered suspension :/

If the wheels are bolted ok and they dont catch anything check ARB droplinks. Maybe the big heavy wheels finished them if they were worn already...
