    07 Taco with 3,592 Kilometers (2,245 Miles) developed a serious case of front end vibration on the highway from 90KM to 120KM this evening. Couldn't go faster to check due to snowy/slippery conditions. Truck was not in rough terrain or in any ruts. Any similar experience?

    Truck was pulled to safety from rear end this afternoon by another truck with a tow rope. I backed up on 4LO while another truck pulled me no more than 20 meters.

    Sounds like the tires are out of balance, or out of round... unless it's something much worse?

    It is common to have ice and frozen snow in the wheels in the winter. I have cleaned my wheels out several times.

    You probably filled your wheels with crap when you ditched 'er.
