    Hi guys. Was wondering if anyone had thoughts on steering wheel vibration? I added a Ready Lift 3/1 leveling kit, with the differential drop, to my stock 2013 Crewmax recently. Running the stock 255-70R18 Bridgestone Dueler everything felt ok. When I added some 20x9 wheels with 12mm offset and 305-55-20 Toyos I get a vibration around 45 mph. Seems to come and go and is more noticeable when things are cold. Love the look, unhappy about the ride.

    I am going to do what Sean suggested. My BFGs are so crappy now with balancing, my local Discount tire cannot get them done anymore.

    The balancing beads came across my mind, but several tire shops did not recommend them with such a small/factory size tire. They might be just trying to get more business as well.

    I had the Road Force Balance done a Firestone, no good. I have been playing with the PSI in my front tires too, no good. Any know of a good 4x4 shop in the Dallas area that can investigate this? I wish I knew someone else running 33's, I'd love to swap them and drive both trucks. Then I could see if the problem followed the tires or it was my truck.

    I have 285/65/18s Nitto Trail Grapplers (33s) and I get some vibration at those speeds. I just figure that's what happens with larger tires. I've thought about those beeds but the science makes it sound like bullshit.

    I had the same problem... it turned out to be the lug nuts. The ones discount tire sold me first didn't seat the wheel properly.
