Unhappy steering wheel vibration on a 05 grand cherokee

i have a vibration in my steering wheel at about 55 mph and it kinda goes away at about 75mph. also feel like the wheels are wobbling. i have 22' rims i got new tires back in march. i had an alignment done less than a month ago after that the vibration seemed to have gotten worse. just the other day i took it to a shop and had a rotation and balance done. also had them check for any separation or any other damage to the tires, but none was found. ive also just and hub centric rings put on all of the wheels supposedly that was going to fix the problem but nothing changed.

so if somebody know what my problem might please let me know...thanks

Re: steering wheel vibration on a 05 grand cherokee

road force balance is necessary for larger wheels

This...

Also consider, people dont understand how difficult it is to balance wheels and tires so the "look good" when you dont have weight on the outside lips of the rims and you hide the weights behind spokes it is very difficult to do a really good balance.

Re: steering wheel vibration on a 05 grand cherokee

The Roadforce balance fixed that issue when I had it long ago. Now I get one done about once a year and just have the standard balances done in between when I get my tires rotated.
