And maybe I'm very wrong but it's the only thing that makes sense to me so far. BUT THE TRUCK IS AWSUM
Interesting theory....that might make sense. Especially feeling it so much through the steering wheel.
I called my dealer to make an appointment today to get the missing hoodlamp and glovebox lamp installed on my Sport which they previous agreed upon, and ordered my parts. The dealer I bought the truck from was installing them free of charge despite saying my VIN doesn't call for the missing parts from my luxury light package. Kudos to the dealer...that's customer service.
Told them I wanted the Techs to check out this vibration I'm having at highway speeds. Without hesitation he asks... "You got 20's? I said yeah...why....he said it's the tires.
" He said "We'll RoadForce balance them for you...bring it in...not a problem
." I didn't have the heart to tell him a dealer closer to me already did that when I did the first oil change. Gonna be bringing my receipt from the other dealer which is just down the street from me just in case. The Road Force did help a little, but that's because they were out of balance.
I'll be pushing for a new set of replacement tires as Chrysler's expense next if they truly feel it's the tires. Maybe even get a set of AT type tires instead of these HP's. Some folks like this HP's, I hate these Badyears tires. I've had issues with sets right off the rack when I've bought replacement tires years ago, as well as other new vehicles that came with them. Maybe that's why GM installed Bridgestones from the factory on there 1/2 tons pickups.
Let's see...new Chevy Tahoe with 20's....Bridgestone. New Cadillac Escalade...Bridgestones. My wife's grocery getting Traverse with 20's...Bridgestone. Sticker on all of these vehicles 45k-60k.....Does GM know something Chrysler doesn't? Spend a couple bucks more for a quality tire, and save a sh*t load of money rather than having a pissed off customer....rhetorical question of course.
