    I just installed the 1 inch Toytec leveling kit in the rear, 2.5 on the front of my 2017 Toyota Tundra; it rides like a tank and there is a strong vibration in the steering wheel. I added BF Goodrich 275 65r 20's on a Black Rhino Warlord wheel with a 12 offset. Toyota says it's just how it rides with a leveling kit? Any thoughts on what's causing the vibration? The front was added last week with no vibrations.

    The vibration is from the wheels IMO. Either alignment or balance. I've read that new tires can be faulty and every once in a while people have had to have brand new tires exchanged. Was it aligned after lift?

    I had a set of BFG all terrains on a 2015 Silverado. No matter what they did 1 of them would not balance. I was going to demand a replacement tire but truck turned out to be a lemon. 7200 miles, towed in 6 times.
    I've always had good luck with the BFG's. It was just that 1 bad tire.
    I now have a 17 Tundra, 2500 miles. I put 6112's up front to level and 5160's on rear. Rides great, no vibration. I still have the stock Michilen tires.
