While on the lift, I rotate the wheels to listen and feel for smoothness. I'll also rock the wheels back & forth on the axle to feel for any bearing shimmy or play.

I don't know that this is the best way, but it's all that comes to mind short of removing the wheels for a visual inspection.

Bikerlaw posted this in the softail section in regard to the same question and it looks like he's right:

None! I now have over 2500 miles on them and no leaks whatsoever, no loose spokes or bearing problems either. They ride perfectly as well, and I never even balanced them. The shop that mounted the tires said they were already very well balanced. I honestly don't expect any negative issues with them at this point, but I'll keep checking. I'm pretty well convinced that these are bad a$$ wheels at a great price.

Hell yeah bud, they look great on your ride. Beats the hell out of your OE wheels, I'm sure! That's a great looking ride. Good for you, enjoy!

BTW, were they a direct bolt-on with your stock axle spacers?
