    Just put some bfg ko2 A/Ts 285/75r16's on my 02 TRD 3.4L and have had them balanced 4 times in the last 6 months since I purchased the tires. I've run the same size ko1 A/Ts the 2 sets previous to the ko2s without a single issue. Did i miss something? Because I've replaced the inner tie rods and ball joints on both sides as well as an alignment and still have vibration in the steering wheel. Its driving me crazy that I cant figure it out. Please help!!

    I had a similar problem with my 06, when I would brake at highway speeds my steering wheel would vibrate, turns out I had to replace the lower control arm on drivers side

    It’s sounds like a bad KO2 or two. Where did you get them from?

    I’ve heard of some KO2’s having a manufacture defect and causing these Sx.
    Can you put another set of tires on and see if it does it?

    Was looking at buying new tires, and I’ve been told BFG’s have had some “separting” issues.

    Could also be caused by rims being too wide for the tire.

    Have the rims and whee run on a balancer WHILE YOU ARE WATCHING! Bent rims can’t be jiggered. Oh, they’ll try....
    Don’t buy it.
