    I have a higher speed shake in my 2015 tundra crew max. I have had the tires balanced and wheel Alignment. The shake happens between 55 and 69 mph? What would be my next option

    Just went through that myself. Had it done at the dealer, the shop that originally did it didn't do it right.

    Make sure they are getting road force balanced on a hunter balancer.

    Check rotors as mentioned, 2015... probably about time to do them unless you already have...

    Welcome and good luck.

    Road force, and dynamic balance. Dont let them get lazy and do a simple terrible static balance.

    I am having the same issue. I had a slight pull to the left had it aligned and the tires rotated and then this steering wheel shake started. I took it back to the alignment shop, he said it was the wear pattern on my tires and I probably needed to replace them (although, I did not have the shake when I took it in), did that took it back to be aligned after putting the new tires on and the fella tells me I have a bent wheel. Had another shop check it, no bent wheel and they balanced each tire however still have the dang shake! Now a third shop states that a dynamic balance will not work on the stock wheels (no outside lip) and recommends a road force test? I need some advice as, I am about to go Cra Cra here.

    Welcome from CO.

    I have the same issue with mine being felt between 50-60 mph. It is NOT the tires/wheels on mine. I’ve had 3 sets of tires and 4 sets of wheels. It does nothing. Road force etc etc...
    It’s driving me nuts. I have an appointment with Toyota next week and it better be rectified or I’m buying an American truck...:anonymous: Maybe not but I can’t live with this shake..

    had installed new front rotors and brakepads and my steering wheel vibration was better but still there. my problem was that I did not do a good enough job cleaning all the rust out with a steel wire brush between and around the bolts where the rotors sit. Once that was done propertly my tundra is now as smooth as silk. simple but had me stumped had checked & balanced tires, checked driveshaft etc. etc. !!! :)

    what bolts are you referring to? I have had wheels balanced and got my alignment today (desperately needed alignment, numbers were baaaaaaaaaaaad), but I think its still a little shakey. I think this has to do with tire wear, but still shouldn't be all that bad.

    Sorry not the best description not bolts exactly... I meant clean all the rust off the wheel assembly where the brake rotors butt up against also clean off behind the exposed threads really well... I thought it was a good enough job being the weekend mechanic i am and it was not... you really have to get in there and get all rust off so the rotor sits perfectly against the wheel assembly am still kicking myself for that!

    seems tedious, but I may need to do it. the salt water and beach trips are prolly killing me.
