Default Rough ride/bent rim?/off roading Question...need advice

I just bought a brand new ram last month, has less that 2500 miles on it now. when i first got the truck the ride was soooo smooth...now its sooo bad...the truck vibrates/shakes ridiculously even on flat newly paved roads. I took it mudding last weekend and was doin some donuts and slid into a couple big ruts...im wondering if i might have bent one of my rims?? I have the chrome 20inch? stock rims.

I wondering if this is even possible...what to do?...am i still covered under the 3 yr warranty?

help me out guys, i need some advice

More likely you have some mud up in there throwing off the ballance. Try removing the wheels and cleaning again.

Goodluck!

That's good advice ^^^^ right there. Make sure you don't have a bunch of mud stuck to the inside of the wheels all around.

You may have also lost a balance weight.

yeah...the mud thing.

Remember, the wheel weights they put on your wheels to balance them are only a few ounces. Put a pound of mud offcenter on your rim...tis going to wobble...lol

You could have knocked a weight off also. If you did bend a rim, it won't be covered under the warranty.
