In this day and age, it takes very little to warp rotors by over tightening.

Excuse you. I use torque sticks and don't have comebacks for warped rotors or vibrations, so I'd appreciate you not stereotyping me. I'll put my credentials up against anyones, anytime.

Since the tires seem to be out of balance every time, it's possible that the balancer is out of calibration.

Well the rim dealer ordered me a new set of rims and a new set of tires. They said that three of the tires were out of round. Got the truck back with new rims and tires. Still vibrating, but now in the front and not the rear. I am totally frustrated. The tires are the same as the stock 20" goodyear wrangler Hp's. I think that maybe the second set of tires maybe bad also. Has anybody else had this problem with the goodyears.

Reading the posts and wondering what came of this issue. I'm currently going through the same thing (just started however) with some Yokoma Tires and new WB rims.
