Default Beringer nosewheel

New RV6A owner and first few flights ended up with a wicked shimmy. Enough to pop-off 2 rivets off the brackets secured to the nosewheel pant. I purchased a Beringer nosewheel and question to all, the tire shipped with nosewheel, are they good tires and round? Expecting delivery this week. Any gotcha's on BEringer installation? Thank you all

Thats only on the larger 5:00x5 tire, the smaller 11:00 x5 tires use either the Desser or the new 'Deli' tire, both are good tires. Beringer recently switched to the Deli tire due to quality issues with the Desser.

Default Michelins are good but not that good.

I fly a Cirrus a bunch and we had to replace a new Michelin nose tire that came from the factory on the plane because it was out of round. Shook like a wet dog on spin down. Also we got Beringer to publish a way to balance their wheels which is new to them.
Search for MM-02-012 on Beringer site. It is a maintenance working card.
