    just got this truck, after a few hundred k noticed slight wheel vibrations.

    Took it back and they balanced tires 20" dunglops, now it's worse.

    Was going to get rid of the crap OEM anyways and put some Michelin.

    Should I be worried that this is some defect?

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Thanks

    Since it is under warranty, I would stay after the dealership to get it right to include the service manager going for a test ride with you.

    My Tundra came with Michellin LTX A/T2. I don't know if this is the same as Defender or not? Anybody know?

    Happy to say that the Michelin are on and drive fantastic. There is zero road noise compared to the POS dunflops.

    Rides super nice I drive 90% highway basically never go off road.

    I traded up from a 2008 Tacoma DC and had slightly oversized Duratrac's on it, awesome tire in the winter, but they are noisy and gas mileage drops a lot.

    That being said my winter setup will be duratacs on 18" rims , I'll have to search maximum size I can put on with stock suspension.
