Kingsong s18 tire wobble

Recommended Posts


New rider. First wheel. Heres a video of my wheel doing a slight wobble that gets really bad at high speed. If you can hear it it’s also rubbing inside a little. How can I fix this? From what I could tell to my untrained eye, the tire looks seated fine to me. Even though I will still try to deflate and seat again. Is it the tire or something else?

Hi and welcome.
Wobbles are normal, they will go away with habit.
The rubbing is a common issue due to lousy alignment between the motor and the housing. With the S18 you have a chance to adjust it though, check out @fbhb s S18 overhaul, you might find something. Else many people either live with it or cut a bit of the tire where it rubs.
