I apologize if this is in the wrong thread.

I just had new tires mounted on rims for the front of the bronco. The shop used static weights. I went rolling down the road and all I hear is clicking from the front wheels. Could the static weights be hitting the caliper? I know its a tight fit in there but I cant see well seeing as how the shields are in the way.

I had weights on the inside of my rims. They were stacked up on top of each other on the inside of the rim. The rim would no spin due to the weight hitting the rim. I am looking at your pic and the front passenger inside wheel appears very close to you hub assembly.

It was the weights. Couldnt them hit the caliper due to the shield being in the way. There isnt much room in there for the static weights to clear the caliper. I ended up just ripping them off. Went for a test drive and smooth as can be. Thanks for the input guys.
