    hey whats up fellow tacoma lovers i live in Maryland and i've noticed that alot of the 2nd gen access cab tacomas i've seen always have their spare put on. So my question is do the 2nd gen tacomas have a tire defect because when mine went bad it only had a small hole in it that i got patched up by friend.

    keep having to balance one of them. it is getting very annoying. Everytime I hit 75-80 MPH, the right side shakes. Then I rotated them to the front. Now the wheel shakes at that speed...

    I was told by discount tire to take it back to the dealer. They said it was wearing unevenly. That plus the shake usually equals a tire that is out of round. :(
