    My '16 SR5 Crewmax 4x4 came with Bridgestone Dueler HT's.

    They didn't last super long but when Road Forced balanced road excellent.

    I've noticed depending on the region some are stocked with different tires.

    I have since put on Michelin Defender LTX M/S tires but I just can't get them balanced right. I have had them spinned balanced 4 times. Two rear tires replaced and road forced balanced twice. I think I'm going to get a different set of something. I can't stand the shaking.

    What did yours come with?

    Your the first person I’ve heard that has had problems with Michelin Defenders. If I was to guess, I’ll bet your front rotors need replaced secondary to an impact Gun set to high.

    Possibly. I had them resurfaced at 17k. 32k on it now. The funny thing is the vibration mostly feels like it's coming from the back. I'm getting little to no vibration when braking.

    I am going to get my rear rotors/pads replaced and see if that is the issue.

    Shitty ones.

    FWIW- it was doing great. I looked in my rear view mirror and see my wife stuck in her Jeep. I turned around, stopped, got her out and I was high centered.

    Update: I had all my rotors resurfaced and the issue was not resolved. Took it to a different Discount Tire location and they swapped all the tires for new Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus's. Problem solved. Night and day difference. My only guess is the store I originally bought them from had a bad batch of the Michelin's but I was done messing with them after 5 spin balances, 2 road force balances, and 2 new rear tires.

    I spoke to a tire rep I work with on the commercial side and he said it happens sometimes.
