Hi, my name is ***** ***** you feel the shimmy i the steering wheel or more from the seat of your pants?
Ok, this is usually aused bya partially seized ujoint in the rear shaft, and is common, have you pulled the rear of the shaft out and seen if it moves freely, usually when this happens, the rear shaft has rough spots in it?
No, it wont be the rotors, if it does it when the brakes are NOT applied, have you removed the shaft, and checked the front ujoint, or just visually checked it?
No if the ujoint has ridges inside, it will create it at any speed, and is common, the center carrier bearing can also cause this, have you checked the carrier bearing too?
these would be the 2 most common culprit on this truck, how many miles do you have on this?
so this was not here, until you got the new tires?
Yes, it is possible you got one with a broken belt in it, you could rotate the front to the rear, and see if it feels like the vibration moves, this would verify it, but if it was not there until you replaced the tires, then it has to be a bad belt, or they ar still out of balance,Tim
then it has to be a broken bet in one of the tires, I would take itto a different tire shop and have them check them,Tim
