Nitto Grappler G2 wheel shake

Hey everyone. Looking for some insight and/or advice. I have a 2012 WK2 Altitude and recently purchased the BORA 1" wheel spacers, RRO leveling kit, and Nitto Grappler G2s size 275/55/20. Took all the stuff to a local tire shop today. They called back a few hours later, saying that everything is installed but there is some shake when it gets up to speed. He's gonna have his guys mess with it more tomorrow, but has anyone had an issue with this, and if so, any advice on how to fix it, so I can tell my tire guy? THANKS!!!!!

Re: Nitto Grappler G2 wheel shake

This first thing to check is balance. The main cause of high speed shake is an unbalanced wheel/tire.

I'm sure they will get it figured out. Good luck

I know. Hopefully his guys will figure it out tomorrow. It's a nice shop with good reviews. I think they were closing soon, and didn't have the time to troubleshoot it today. Hopefully tomorrow morning they will get it right.

Take the spacers off and see what happens.

Re: Nitto Grappler G2 wheel shake

If all the tires balance properly, it could possibly be one of the spacers that didn't sit perfectly flush when installed.

Re: Nitto Grappler G2 wheel shake

Wanted to update everyone. Tire place said they didn't have one of the wheels balanced correctly. Drives like a champ now. I love the new, beefier look now!!

How is with space in the wheel well? Is it very tight, especially since the G2s seem to run bigger then the NTG.

Re: Nitto Grappler G2 wheel shake

Very nice. I have the same rig and racking my brain on which tires to get! Down to Duratracs, (most expensive) BFG TA KO2, BFG Rugged terrains (cheapest so far) Cooper AT3, Zeon LTZ, or Firestone Destination AT. Oh and the Terra Grapplers G2, but didn't find them in 275/55/20... Where did you get yours?
