BFGoodrich all terrain T/A's

I just had a set of these put on yesterday and now my truck shakes at 60mph. All other speeds are just fine. It's definently due to one of the tires in the rear. Any of you that have these tires have any issues? I kinda thought there was gonna be a problem when I seen 3 huge wheel weights on the one rim before I drove away from the tire shop. Will be going back there today but I just wanted to see if anyone has had issues with these tires.

They need to seperate the rim from the bead of the tire and rotate the tire around the rim. It's too far out of balance where the tire is on the rim now. Generally if I balance a tire and it specs at more than 3 oz of weight I move the tire around the rim and re-balance it. Especially with BFG AT's, they hardly ever need more than 1-1.50 oz of weights when i've balanced them.

Ok so now everything seems to be ok I think. Went back and they re balanced all the tires and one they did have to rotate on the rim to get it correct. They also said the balancer was off calibration when they did the tires the first time. Now how do they let this happen? Well I will know tomorrow morning when I get on the expressway and see how the ride is. Never had this kind of situation before. Oh well hope I don't have to go back again.

Im glad all is good after what I spent on these tires.. Now I have to say these are worth the $$$. I was out in the rain today and these tires gripped the road better than any tire i've ever owned. Makin a turn, gettin up and going was like being on dry pavement. No slip at all. I highly recommend these tires!! Now I can't wait for the snow lol. Need tires? Get the all terrains!
