Question on rear dual wheels

Maybe I am overthinking this but here it goes. I had new tires installed this past Thursday. Yesterday I pulled the covers off because I wanted to get my air pressures set. When I pulled the rear covers off I noticed a small on the offset of the studs. I just want to make sure a guide pin from the inner wheel doesn't do in there to line the wheels up. They are 19.5" ford steel wheels. I looked between the wheels and everything looks ok...no gaps or abnormal spacing.

Are you saying that the studs are not absolutely centered in the wheel rim holes?

Not completely understanding what your seeing, but some wheels are hub centered and have large stud holes. You can tighten up the nuts and see the marks where the nuts sat the last time.

Not sure they use guide pins anymore.

I can not figure out how to post a pic. All I am saying is that there is a small hole between the studs. I was just wondering if that was a pilot/guide hole to line both wheels up.

My 16" wheels have the same holes, but no guide pin. I just put the valves opposite.

Thank you. That is what I was trying to find out.

pacevette , you left the word HOLE out of your original post , that's what lead to the first responding member's confusion.

Info on posting pictures is in the " FAQ " drop box, in the dark blue bar below your welcome message. There is a size limit on any pictures so they have to be re-sized before you attempt to post.

Pacevette,
Yes, to say the least, your post is a bit hard to decipher. It's been a while since we've had coach with 16" or 19.5" wheels but, I seem to recall there being a "Locating pin" in one of those or the other. I was never sure why it was there but, never the less, they were there. I maybe suspect that, the locating pin was there to keep the valve stems 180 degrees apart, heck I don't know, just a guess.

But, I'm also assuming that since you had the tires installed and, the tire shop who did the work must have re-installed them on the hubs correctly so that you had no issues with the ride of the coach, on the way back home.

My 16" wheels have the guide pins and the last time I had tires put on the "technician" did not line them up with the holes.

I could tell something wasn't right after driving 10 feet. I immediately parked it and they figured it out shortly. But on closer inspection by another shop it was apparent that the rims were ruined.

The original shop did replace them for me.
