I put new tires on , now while putting the front wheel on it looks like I am missing a spacer on the right side....Just does not feel right.

What I am asking is there a spacer on the right side??
I just don't know what goes between the wheel and the end of the axle.

Hi, and yes there is a spacer on both sides. The spacer might be on the dealers floor when they changed the tire.

No dealer, just my dumb a....
Been looking all over the garage tonight but to no avail.
Not quite sure what to look for.
One of those things when I took it off I thought I heard something hit the ground.
Now I know it was something I need to finish the front tire.

It's a tubular cylinder "collar" with a hole in the middle, you can see it as part #5 below:

Keep looking, you will find it, look in places where you never thought it would go it will be there. :o
