Take it to a wheel alignment place since it will have to aligned anyway after it is put on. You will need a special tool to remove it from spindle anyway.

Front right tire wobbles as if out of balance at speeds of 60-65 mph even after getting it balanced.


Assuming the wheel and mounted tire is balanced and the wheel is not bent would point to play in the front end suspension ball joints (control arm ,steering arm, tie rod), worn suspension bushings, or worn strut cartridges. However, some balancing is done at low revolutions rather than high speed balancing. The tire itself could have a belt that is separating in the tire that gets worse the faster it goes. Was the tire dismounted and remounted? Do you see a noticeable odd wear pattern on the tread? With the car up on a jackstand, grab the wheel at 12 and 6 o'clock and try to shake looking for play; then do the same thing at 9 and 3 o'clock. Check that all of the rods rods are tight especially near the ball joint and the bushings have not deteriorated. Loose wheel lug bolts/nuts are another cause.

I get vibrations in the front end when I am going around 65 mph. I have had the tires balanced and replaced 2 of the tires, but still have the problem.


You need to have your tie rods checked out. Most of the time it will be your tie rods or your wheel bearings. You can replace your tires all day long, but it will not fix that problem.

If your tires were not properly balanced then it will cause that. Also, if your rotors are warped then icould cause this to happen. YOu would also notice it when braking if rotors are warped.

not a big problem. It may be tie rod wearing. If you hear a click when turning it would be the ball joints. If it does not make clicking sound, then most likely tie rod ends or improper alignment

Have you checked the U-joints in the rear drive shaft? Also did this happen before the tires were replaced? Take the truck back to where you got the tires and have them check the balance, they should do this for free.
