Oy, please don't be driving until someone figures this out. This stuff is really simple if you know how it all works. The chambers likely had nothing to do with it pulling, who made that determination?

Just talked to S. on the phone,he says the wheel is rubbing and grinding.
The truck stop replaced his alum wheel with a steel wheel,his alum wheel was ruined.
We need a wog guy in the Albuquerque area to help take a look at this.
Carl Threat,are you in the area?
Does anybody have Carls number?
Kiki,can you take a look?
Is there anybody else in A. that can help?

I'm not sure if a steel wheel will tighten down on the hub,the wheel studs may have a shoulder and the nuts may be bottomed on on this shoulder.
Maybe thats the noise?

Its been years since the trucking industry has use a stud mounted wheel. Do you think they may have installed the wrong wheel after the blow out?

I went out to my stash and checked a front hub,the threads on the studs go all the way to the hub,no shoulder.
So the wheel should be tight.

He told me they made 3 trips to bring him a wheel,because the first 2 wheels would not fit.
They charged him for those 2 extra trips.
I suspect the wheel is wrong.

Four things to check;

1) do the threads go all the way down to the hub?

2) steel wheels and aluminum wheels use different length studs so did they get the nuts torqued down properly?

3) are the steel wheels hub piloted or stud piloted?

4) is the steel wheel offset wrong causing it to rub somewhere?

Swap out a outside drive. Steel may mount back or allow travel back to an rv park for calm repair. On the road the best resource is the non emergancy phone number for the local fire company and ask for a mobile technician contact and permission to drop them as a source.
