Default Back wheel cr125 Need advice

     

Hey guys, my back wheel on my bike is making it almost impossible for me to ride, My spokes are coming lose very easily and the back tire is wobbling like crazy its caused me to wreck once. I've been tightening them after every ride as best I can but I think its time for some new spokes and probably a rim.

Do i need to get a new hub also, should I change the bearings while I do that?

Thanks in advance to everyone that helps

If your just tightening them randomly then you could have been making the issue worse. I'd try and make a truing stand and true the wheel. If you still have issues I'd then start replacing things.

you mean like take the wheel off and try to tighten them all equally? I understand what you mean but i think one spoke is stripped and it just seems like they need changed..its still stock from 05

a wobbling wheel could be caused worn wheel bearings. grab wheel at 3and 9 wheel moves back and forth its bearings. as far as spokes tighten them even u should hear a ting not tong using a screw driver . replace all strip out spokes diont over tighten them.
good luck
