    ....I'm getting frustrated. I had Discount Tire do it twice with no luck. Figure, I would pay Firestone and have a buddy from TW take care of it. He says it's perfectly balanced but still vibrates at highway speeds. Any ideas what it could be?? Truck has 16K miles with 285/55/20 BFG ATs.

    Bad belt in a tire, did you try rotating fronts to the back to see if that helped? Try an alignment?

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    If you bought at discount they should replace the tires if they can't balance. Sounds like they are balanced though.
    Have them road force balance. A little extra but may help.
    Another thing that affects vibes is alignment. When was your last alignment? Might have it checked.

    I did not buy them at DT. DonnoD was able to road force balance. Totally worth the cost in this case.

    If thats the case, I'd rebalance on a standard balancing machine. Some tires need Roadforce, some dont seem to like it. Just depends on the set.
