Yep, im pretty sure its an outta round tire now. feels like pass. rear. Had them RE-balanced yesterday and went ahead and had them put the nitrogen in tires. I can tell a difference on the pull, not as heavy feelin. called Discount Tire direct and there sending another tire. they are SO AWSOME it was effortless!! told the guy the problem and he said its on its way!!

But yeah its freakin awful!!! whole rear of truck is bouncing around everywhere and is soo bad it makes the steering wheel shake. i can look in the side mirror and rear veiw and just see the bed dancing around!! woah!!! lol

real men ask for ROADFORCE BALANCING from a tire dealer. if they don't have it. look around. it's for oversized tires.

RoadForce balancing is a great way to find a bad tire. I use it at work all the time. Its not for oversized tires, it is for all tires. It sounds like you have a bad tire, it could have been molded bad at the factory. If it is moving side to side, then I would get a new one. I have seen this on cheaper tires, brand new. We end up sending them back to the manufacturer and getting new tires.
