Fed up!
 
I purchased the 275/55/20 about a month ago at discount tire. Love the tires until the freeway when I have an unbelievable shake. 3 balances, 2 of them being forced road balanced and still having the same issues. I love the tires but what do I do? I had them once again balanced this morning and checked after a 5 mile test drive and all 4 were already out if balance. Is anyone else having these issues or know where I should go from here?

Could be out of round tires, I had a set of out of tires from discount tires they got me a new set that fitted the problem.

I've had no problems of the sort with my Zeons. Go back where you bought them and get a new set...one or more must be out of round.

strange that all 4 tires go out of balance after a 5 mile drive. I recall balancing beads that is installed inside of tires that automatically gravitates to the area that is out of balance. I will search around and see if I can find info on it.

I also think you have at least one tire that is out of round.

are you using the stock wheels?? if not than hub centric rings should be used.

Too often, tires get blamed for an out of balance problem when it's actually the wheels or a tech that doesn't really know how to balance tires/wheels combos.
