CHAPTER NINE
WHEELS, TIRES AND BRAKES
This chapter describes disassembly and
repair of the front and rear wheels, hubs, tires
and brakes.
Wear limits and torque specifications are
given in Tables 1-5 at the end of the chapter.
WHEELS
All models covered in this book are
equipped with cast aluminum alloy wheels.
Rim Runout
Wheel rim runout is the amount of "wobble"
a wheel shows as it rotates. If the wheel has
been subjected to a heavy impact or if you have
any cause to suspect the wheel doesn't run
"true," inspect the wheel runout.
1. Remove the tire from the wheel rim so that
it doesn't distort the rim; see
T i r e
Removal in
this chapter.
2. Support the wheel on its axle and measure
the axial and radial runout with a dial indicator
(Figure 1).
3. The maximum allowable wheel rim runout
on cast wheels is:
a. Axial (side-to-side): 0.02 in. (0.5 mm)
b.
Radial (up-and-down): 0.03 in. (0.8 mm)
