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.
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.
