tire vibration?

Hello, all,

Having a problem with vibration on my 02 Prerunner regular cab. I've had the tires(Goodyear) balanced twice and still have a bad vibration between 55 and 70 or so. I guess it could be one or more of the tires but they're probably only about half-worn. Can it be coming from misalignment or tie rod ends? Or is this common on all short bed regular cab Prerunners?

Thanks,
R0cky

Find a shop that takes pride in what thay do. Tell them to take there time.Hang in there its definately a tire balance problem.
There have ben many threads about steering wheel shaking and vibration at around 45MPH to 70 MPH. I myself have had this problem.For some time. I have had my tires balanced many of times with no success. Well I am here to tell you guys that it is a diffinate tire balance issue. I just had my tires rebalanced from another tire shop.This guy took his time would not give up until it was right. It took him about an hour and a half. After driving it around for a day. It is as smoth as glass. No more shaking of the steering wheel. Man that is a great feeling. I am running BFGs AT. 31x10.50R15.
