    There have ben many threads about steering wheel shaking and vibration at around 45MPH to 70 MPH. I myself have had this problem.For some time. I have had my tires balanced many of times with no success. Well I am here to tell you guys that it is a diffinate tire balance issue. I just had my tires rebalanced from another tire shop.This guy took his time would not give up until it was right. It took him about an hour and a half. After driving it around for a day. It is as smoth as glass. No more shaking of the steering wheel. Man that is a great feeling. I am running BFGs AT. 31x10.50R15.:)

    View the build. Too much to list.
    Awesome dude. I had the same issue after I got a set of Goodyears. Took 4 balances. But the manager that did it did everything in his power to get it right. Now it's like driving a giant pillow.

    I also had a lot of trouble getting my tires balanced. Had to take it back 3 times to get rebalanced and it still wasn't right. Then I found a tsb online about a tire balancer adapter for 5 and 6 lug Toyota wheels. The Haweka adapter made a huge improvement in the balancing of my tires.
