    Yep, two in one week.

    While driving from 55-65MPH my wheel now shakes like a mofo.

    I think I have already diagnosed my problem. Is the Rugged Trail tires. They seem to be wearing badly, I'm guessing they are out of round. To make matters more interesting, my dealer did NOT align my vehicle after having the leaf TSB done. Think this caused it?

    I'm getting new tires in the next few months anyway, when I can afford them (looks like it'll be 265/75 BFG A/T). Just pisses me off that my dealer fucked up my Rugged Fails.

    if tires are out of balance theyll shake to no end at random spots...my old trxus m/ts stayed out of balance and theyd shake around 30-35mph and during braking...

    theyll look like theyre wearing funny because they are...mine cupped really bad...every other lug wore itself down...

    my current tires are out of alignment but i cant really afford to do an alignment this month...i have taxes to pay...theyre wearing funny...but not cupping...the outside row of lugs is wearing down faster than the inside...


    first attempt to fix would be to try and balance the tires

    i think the rugged trails are hit or miss

    i had them on my truck when i first got it and had zero balance issues with them

    the only problem i had was they were street tires :rolleyes:

    they ended up being on my truck for 40K or so miles

    mine were done at 23k miles........and that was balance and rotate every 5k, and keeping the air adjusted in them. they were a really shitty tire.

    Yeppers! Usually "cupped" means bad shocks or struts.
    Wearing on the outside means alignment or bad ball joints or tie rods.

    The dealer should have done an alignment after the TSB for the springs was performed. This is most likley the cause of the poor tire wear. lsoscee had a simillar problem, and I belive they replaced the tires for free. :)
