    I don't really know if its only me, I replace the Factory rims and tires,, with some 20 bridgestone tires and Enkei rims,,, the rims are suppose to be top of the line and no matter what I try to do theres always a slight vibration 65-75, hunter road force balance, John bean lazer light... I jus think I'm going to buy a set oem rims and be done with it,,, if that will help,, I just don't know,,, and this 6 speed trany sucks,,,

    Did they use the stick on wheel weights, or the one's that clip on the side? Also you could have gotten a bad tire or two, that has happened to me on several occasions.

    I had that problem with falken tires, went back to toyo tires and it went away. Also the rims maybe not true...not round...could be so ever small but enough to feel it.

    There are no aftermarket rims that are built better than factory, I had some Weld Racing velocity 8's on my silverado and within 10,000 miles I had 3 bent rims and at $800 each I was HOT!!! Weld Racing told me that's what happens when you run with rubber bands on them, I laughed and told him the truck has had 35" tires from the factory and he didn't have much to say after that. They sell you junk, and then they will deny everything...
