Have them put ur wheels and tires on a road force machine. It will tell if there is a defective tire or wheel on ur car.

Some of the better tire shops have the Hunter 9700 Road Force Balance machine
It is the best current way to get your wheel & tire balanced

market wheels are not hubcentric, get some rings to center the wheels to the hubs. put your old wheels back on. balancing will not fix this problem

Any fix for the problem of a vibration at 60+? I have a 2010 crew cab with 24's that does the exact same thing. Bought new rear tires and had the tires balanced twice, hasn't gone away. Thinking I need to try the road force balance, haven't heard of that befor. weird thing is the vibration comes and goes...need some help. Very frustrating for such an expensive truck.
