my 2009 now has 110,500 miles on it
Back when i first bought it, the dealership was only doing the front to rear tire rotation & they knocked off a couple of the weights, & all of a sudden i had tire shake.
The weights are glued onto the rim, where they can't be rubbed off
The dealer couldn't find the problem & they do have a Hunter Road Force Balancing Machine, so it gave them all the required data, guess the Floor Sweeper just doesn't know how to read it.

I told the Service Writer that they needed to pull off the weights & start from scratch
They charged me for all the weights & hours of Labor

I never had another issue & now only a real tire shop does my Rotations

Wrangler Tires suck, i had them removed at 30,000 miles & they had loads of tread left

Don't drive around in 4 wheel drive unless it is needed, it will cause your front tires to cup quickly on dry pavement

Update:
I had my truck in at the Dodge dealership for the tire balancing.
They have the Road Force balancer. Turns out 2 of my wheels were out.

Front Right = 5 oz out
Right Rear = 3 oz out

Vibration is gone!

Is it all over the tires or only on inside?

Do you mind if i ask what tires you use now, i`ve recently bought my first truck and it has wranglers on it, you`re not the first person i`ve heard thats not happy with them so was looking at alternatives for when they are due for change - thanks - sorry to hijack the thread :-)
