    So I put new tires on my truck yesterday and started noticing that the steering would wobble or vibrate when i got up to about 70 mph. I have only had this truck for about a week. It is an 06 Double Cab TRD. I figured that it just needed to be aligned so I went and had that done, and when I left there it was still vibrating, but now it was pulling left and when i turned sharp left the fron left tire (265/75/16) would rub. It did not do this before, and when I took it back the guy assured me that what they do would not cause this, but it wasn't doing this before. Sure enough when I left after the second time it didn't rub anymore, and they finally got it running straight. It is still vibrating a litttle bit though. I had the tires balanced also, and now I don't know what to try next or what the problem might be. Anyone have any suggestions or has been through this?

    Ok I'll give that a shot. The cheapest place I have found is $20 per tire, is this about what it should cost? Just curious cause that will put me at $120 just balancing my tires today not to mention the allignment. Thanks for you guys help.
