Did you get the exact same style rims? If the rims are different, they may require different lug nuts. Please follow up on this, I am very curious!

Marc- You sound like you know your vehicle. A couple thoughts come to mind. First I would check that the lug nuts do hold the rim tight-mostly because it is quck as easy,. Second I would check to see if there is a bad tire. Yuo'll need to get it on a balancer to do this, or by jacking the truck up so the wheels are off the ground, and running the truck while in the air. You narrowed down the problem to the rims or tires by changing them once. You need to find the up and down movement in the problem wheel. I am surprized the selling company hasn't worked with you to do this! If you told them that when you change the wheels back and the wobble goes away, don't htey take a little responsibility?

You would have to take all your tires off and put the car on car jacks. You will have to take the old tires with you to have the new tires you purchase put on the old rims.

Do you need a lift kit to put 22 inch rims?

the size of the tire will determine whether or not a lift kit will be required, not the rim size. For example: If your vehicle currently has 31" tall tires on 16" rims and you want to upgrade to 22" rims with 31" tires then you should be fine. You will want to make sure that your rims have the right backspacing, especially if your new rims are wider than your existing ones.

How can I fix my skid steer tires which are wearing more on one side than the other?

Well, if they are getting wear on one side more than the other, it's probably the rims on that side, and not the tires. You should take it to a garage, and have someone look at the rims, if they are okay, then you should buy a new set of used tires, and they will probably last longer.
