    Aftermarket wheels should not warp the rotors. Take it to see what they say.

    r u sure your wheels are not just out of balance? With the regen I can't see heating the rotors up that much to cause it to warp

    My brakes pulse when I use them. In my case it was probably pad deposits from the parking brake after a lapping session.

    For those suggesting it's a lack of hubcentric ring or the wheels themselves, they would vibrate all the time vs. vibrating when the brakes are used...

    VIBRATION WHILE BRAKING (IFORGED 21" wheels)


    Guys,

    I had 1000 babied miles on my Model S without any hard braking when I installed my 21" iforged wheels. They were machine for my make and model in mind. I am having the same trouble with vibration while braking starting the day my wheels were installed. I was told they were correctly balanced before install and do not vibrate while driving. Anyone else have any input??? Do I need these "hub-centric rings" ? If so does anyone know what size?

    Thanks in advance guys!
