How much runout on the pretty wheels? :D
Zerthk..... VVV linky:beer:

....................

I tossed them on the axle and checked the runout.......

My runout was .02 and I was worried..once again "wheels"..they hold tires..they do not like coming off at 70mph (Alex) so I was being anal..

Till I found out the allowed runout for steel wheels is like .120!!

So the tires got mounted and here we go...................

Ok, stupid question alert...

What's "runout"?
It's the total amount of out of squareness of a face (in this case) or out of roundness when measured with a dial indicator (see the first pic). It's a little hard to tell but he is checking the face of the rim near the edge.

I found this when searching for a better description, look at page 30:
