    Hey all I recently put on a set of 5100 set at 1.75 and put some 265/70/17 cooper atp. Had a bad vibration and discount said that the tires that were on there were wrong due to the fact that they were a 10 ply e rating. Went with bfg 265/70/17 still had vibration. Had it aligned again and said it was good. Told alignment place that it was pulling to the right. They tweaked it a little but still feel like it has a vibration up front. I had discount balance the bfg twice and they said it is fine. Not sure what else it could be??

    Could be a bent wheel. Rotate the tires from front to back and see if the vibration moves with the wheels.

    also, was it roadforce balanced?

    these trucks are prissy bishes about balancing.

    I will try the rotate tires and see. Also, what's the difference between regular balancing and roadforce balancing?

    Just a different process. It applies a force to the tire while balancing, the idea being, it applies the forces the tire will actually see and you balance to that. It seems to work sometimes if you have a tire that's stubborn to balance.

    Also, make sure they are using the Haweka adapter when balancing.
