Yeah, something is seriously wrong but beats me -- BFG's almost don't NEED balancing.

John they are 33 BFG mud terrains, which usually balance quite well. When he first had them mounted on his new rims he had no balancing at all and had less vibrations then he has now.

have you had the truck up to 60mph with them in there? or have you only had it at around 30mph? my truck has a small vibration at lower speeds but at highway speeds they are smooth...

That sounds like some kind of side-to-side vibration from what you're describing. Like it's just one tire that's having an issue. It just sounds SO outside the "norm" I'm wondering if it's not just one tire that has like a "pocket" or something in it that collects the beads and seriously throws it off.

I feel bad also because I too recommended them. Sorry this is happening to you.

I got the standard response email from what I can make of it. It could be the tire lube that was used but at the same time I am getting a vibration from what seems to be from all four corners and cannot see having four bad tires. I have emailed him back with more questions, ill keep you all updated.

That doesnt mean its not worth a look! I've seen plenty of people torque and retorque their lugs only to have them come loose on them after a week or two......its probably not that, but you never know. Since he just got new wheels its very possible.

I just had the wheels off putting a coat of wax on them, they were torqued and I drove it.

heres a thought, what about swapping two tires with redneck stone, and see if there a difference, the, well first start with the two rears, then put your old rears back on and put rednecks's on the front.... that should atleast give you a 'cheap' way to diagnose the prob. I hafta agree, its MOST likely just 1 tire. and this is one way of eliminating some of the vairable quickly and cheaply.

Could possibly be the rim is not true. I have dyna beads and they made it worse with my lobsided rim.

Yikes....

I've got four new M/T Classic II's, a dyna bead balancing kit(beads, filtered stems, double seal valve caps), and 4 Kumho M/T KL71's waiting to be put together. I'm wondering if I should get some weight attached to the inside of the rims JIC.

Sorry to hear about this Bill....

I am working with Robert from Innovative and he seems to think that its the tire lube causing the issue. I can see that because they were kinda heavy with it but at the same time. Thats more money out of pocket for the dismount, then finding a shop that is willing to let me vacuum the beads out and then wipe the tire out. Mount the tires again and do I take the chance of reinstalling the stuff? Not sure what I am going to do.
