Default question for you guys running M/Ts/35" tires

I notice my truck now starts wandering a bit when I get about 85+ MPH (not that I go that fast that often, but I had to pass some people on the highway the other day) she started wandering pretty good.

Can anyone relate, Normal for 35" M/Ts? or indication I should be lookin out for something

Tire should be solid up to 95-100mph. I ran mine up yesterday to 95 with no issues at all with Mickey T's ATZ's. What brand are your tires? Sounds like you may have a tire seperation issue!

I now see you are running the FEDERAL tires.

THAT IS PROBABLY YOUR ISSUE. Not trying to be funny but they are cheap for a reason.

No way to tell unless you have access to a celography . (x ray )

Doubt anyone has one. If they balance true on a wheel balancer but still vibrate at high speeds, good chance you have a seperation.

No close ups. I love the tires. Very little road noise and GREAT handling!
I work for Goodyear and decided to go with these. I do not regret a thing. Not near as agressive as they look. Great traction in the snow.

If you have a belt separating you'll be able to feel it, just run your hands around the tire, you may feel a bump or you may feel a left to right distortion

my dad was in town this weekend and he felt the tires and didn't notice anything unusual. so i'm going to try the hub centric rings and a re-balance and go from there (in regards to my vibration issue, i'm confusing threads now) but they all kind of go together

I don't know how much weight you have from your balance, but if they need to put 3.5 oz's or more in one spot, ask them to break down the tire and spin the tire 180 degrees on the wheel, and going to hub centrist isn't a bad idea either
