2005 Tacoma 4x4 front end shake
I have a 2005 Tacoma access cab, a/t, 4.0. The steering wheel shakes back and forth approx 1/4" from 40 mph to approx 60 mph. Is there any common repairs for this? The dealer that I just bought it from put new General Grabber 265/70/16's on it. Thanks

Tires are out of balance, I know you said it just got new ones put on but the most common fix is a balance or a road force balance. Try that, and rotate the tires.

Thanks alot, I will try that today...

Yes I would say that the tires are out of balance it sounds like. Unless you went out and tried those new tires out in the mud already. Mud stuck to your rims can throw the tire off balance.

Thanks all, I had them rebalanced and it is alot better.. Then I was told the right front brake caliper is hanging up.. I did'nt notice it pulling at all but will look at that this week end. Thanks again...
