Default Vibration issue

When the beast hits around 75 miles a hour on the interstate there is a vibration in the truck after 78 miles an hour it stops ,i had this since day one. Anyone else have this? Feels like the tires need balanced maybe?

Sounds very familiar if you have the factory 20" wheels. Mine does the same thing.

Never noticed it yet on my ram, but I have other vehicles that do it.....just stay above or below that speed and you wont have the issue....LOL

Not poking fun......just saying sometimes we can be too tuned in to stuff....

Mine is from like 63 to 67mph. Almost has to be a balance issue. I can't believe all the old steel rims I've had in years gone by were precision instruments. They could always be balanced out. I would be more suspicious of the $160.00 Goodyears that came on her. I'll give the dealer a whack at it then likely head for the tire fella. If i decide to swap out the cheap rubber I want to do it soon. Figure I can re-coup some of the cost selling the factory ones if they are almost new.

I have no issues all the way up the speed scale, no vibrations, Maybe its cause I don't have a Hemi and I don't have the original wheels.

Sorry to hear that, I have the same truck but no issues. I did change my tires to Goodyear Duratrac's on stock 20" rims though.

Took my 2012 sport with 2500 miles on it to the shop today for vibration at 75mph and the result is a bad drive shaft.
