It most certainly fixed the issue with mine,,,,it was one tire out of balance on the front and it was only slightly out but it was shaking pretty good...its now smooth as can be!!!!! Hope it works for you okay and it should.

Same here....it's slight but starting to notice is above 65-70, and I was suspecting balancing or the Badyear HP tire that comes with these trucks I've had horrible luck with Badyear tires with both defective tires, road noise, cupping...etc..etc. Bought a set of Wranglers RT/S years ago that the dealer couldn't even balance the tire they were so defective brand new off their rack. The best ones I've own were Bridgestone Revo2 when I traded m Tahoe. Like a grizzly bear in snow, yet quiet on the highway.

It was kinda always my intention to peel them off before getting full use out of them, but maybe I'm gonna do them a little earlier than planned. Maybe I'll take them to the Goodyear Auto Center, and let them take a crack at balancing them first for the few bucks they charge to balance.

I have a vibration in the steering wheel of my truck, but I notice this at low speeds. I can "feel" the road even at 20 kmH. That makes me believe it isn't an out-of balance tire.
Tire pressure is now at 41 psi (up from 35 psi). Still the same, no difference.

Bad tires? Improper balance? T/C issue?
