    I've got a 2010 Trd 4x4
    I had some fuel 22" rims and new 35's put on. The steering wheel shakes at 30-45 mph, then you drive out of it at higher speeds. They balanced them several times, took to alignment shop, rotated .. Still there. Spent 7 hrs there today. They're supposed to change all 4 tires again tomorrow . Any ideas ???

    Since it is at a certain speed range the best guess is the tires aren't getting balanced. I would say bad tire or tires or wheel or wheels. Did they road force balance? All in spec with alignment? No shake before?

    They ended up swapping out the tires for other new ones( same brand, style,etc) and the new tires called for far less weight to be added, vibration is virtually gone , they also had it aligned, and it drives much better now , took two full days, but it's finally right.

    Agreed!

    OP What do you mean by far less weight to be added? Less air in the tires or lower weight rated tire? Something else? Thanks

    The first set they put on front, called for a lot of weight to be added to backside of rims in order to balance They swapped them out, and the 2nd set didn't require near as much

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    in other words new bad tires.. this happens more than you think.... If my memory is correct it would have come out of the mold wrong of the vulcanization process too much heat or not enough ( i bet is the case here) making one side of the tire heavier than the other..
