    hello, Am new here..just bought a 2005 Dble cab V6 6MT with 117k Kms. On city rides its smooth but on hwy at about 100 or even 130kms i feel a bit of vibrations over myself including hands..Is this an alignment issue.?
    The tires are 2005 winter tires..but still looks with ample thread and soft.
    Could the other thing be some hard spots on the tire..??
    thanks in advance !! :confused:

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    X2!

    Nothing wrong with getting that done and get an alignment.

    But it is normal to feel a slight vibration through the steering wheel, but not a lot.

    Definitely get them balanced. I had a similar issues between 55-65 mph. Balancing took care of it. If not that, then check the alignment.

    Tires balanced should solve your problem. Get your alignment checked at the same time. Do the same for your new wheels/tires.
