Re: Stop shaking damit!

With many of us having the issue at the same speeds, it can't all be wheel balance. Between 2 sets of brand new OEM tires and three complete road force balances, I certainly can rule that out. Plus for me at least, the wheel bearings didn't help and I'll add the new OEM rotors to the mix just for process of elimination.

I'm not giving up until my SRT is as vibration free as my Overland.

Stop shaking damit! The infamous 2014 vibration

Hey guys - add me to this list. Replaced my worn Pirellis with Toyo Proxes back in August. Feel it hard at 75+ but noticeable at 60. Leith Jeep in Raleigh has been great. Took wheels off a 15 and tested different combinations with mine and said it's multiple tires but definitely the tires. Reading this I'm skeptical. They also did the wheel bearing TSB. Good guy (Mark) in service there.

I'm really at a loss here. Do I go back to the tire shop and beg for replacements? Maybe try Hankook Ventus ST RH06? Dealer said go Michelin (Latitude Sport 3?).

Despite my love for the Jeep if I can't resolve this I've got to move to something else - it's depressing ever drive to/from work. How do you even sell a performance vehicle that does this? Anybody actually talk to SRT support?

I'm begging here - give me some good options!

Oh, and other posters - please include tire info.

Anybody had their front driveshaft removed and rebalanced? If the dealerships aren't doing this for it might be the best $300 you spend on your Jeep.

Try this. I have been through craziness also with wheel vibration on the 20s for a long time and had road force balancing more times than I can count on this jeep. thanks to a knowledgeable person (Hennessy) concerning balancing in another thread, problem was solved. It comes down to balancing to finer weight detail.

The recommendation was to use a COATS balancer (not the hunter road force) and put in fine mode and took the weight correction down to .1 oz , in addition they used the low tapper collets. Wheels were smooth at 75 and this corrected what numerous road force didn't. This all of course assumes your rims are straight and tires are not out of round.

take a read on this thread
Steering wheel shimmy anybody?

so basically weight correction down to .1 oz , and make sure they use low tapper collets.

If very few shops are balancing correctly it very well could be all balance related. Without going thru the Residual minimization Balancing process you are guessing at the problem.

Re: Stop shaking damit!

Hey All - Hennessey was the key to the solution for me. Please go read this thread where he details exactly how the 20s should be balanced.

I went from heavy vibration at 65+ to now driving LIKE NEW because the shop followed his instructions and got it properly balanced.

It's been months of frustrations, multiple visits to dealer and shop - and now, finally, fixed!

Take his info and go get yours done!
