If you get the tires balanced check there position on the rim first. Every new tire has a dot about a 1/2 inch above the ribbon. Make sure the tires where mounted with that DOT aligned with your air nozzle. Then the balance should be perfect. A lot of dealerships just throw tires on with out lining them up. It can case problems right away on big tires and lifted trucks..

Hope this helps...

I don't agree......The Dot has nothing to do with the balance of the tire. It is only a referance point to be used when the tire is removed from the rim and then replaced.
