Checking Lateral Run-Out

-

Load the tire dial gauge approximately 2 mm.

-

Set up tire dial gauge on the side wall of the tire.

-

Slowly rotate the wheel.

-

Note the smallest and the largest dial readings.

‹› If the difference is greater than 1.3 mm, the lateral run-out is too great.

In this case, lateral run-out can be reduced by matched mounting of the tire. Refer to => [ Matched Mounting ] See: Tires/Service and Repair/Matched
Mounting.

Peak values on the tire dial gauge due to small irregularities in the rubber may be disregarded.

-

-

Slowly rotate the wheel.

-

Note the smallest and the largest dial readings.

‹› If the difference is greater than 1 mm, the radial run-out is too great.
