    I have a 2015 Tundra TRD with a 3" suspension lift and 35x12.5R20 Open Country R/T tires. Only at about highway speeds, 55-65mph I get a shimmy in the steering wheel.

    Question: should I be concerned or consider this as normal with my lift and tire setup. Just got the truck...

    Sounds like a balance issue with the tires. I would get them re-balanced. I have the same size, only they are on 18's no steering wheel shimmy.

    Maybe a wheel is out of balance. Did you hit a pothole or go off road? Maybe you lost some wheel weights.

    I just bought the truck. Previous owner chalked it up to 35" tires. I'm going to do a rotate and balance.
