Re: new overland rims question
If you went from OEM 17s to OEM 20s it's probably a balance issue not alignment. What type of tires did you get put on?

Re: new overland rims question
Double check that the lug nuts are tight. Different tires sound different. Vibrations is much more likely tire balance or defects in tire/wheel than alignment. Sometimes it takes a tire shop a couple tries to get it right, especially if the tire is a little off.

Not many discussions/reviews of the tire, but they seem to ride smoothly and are a bit more noisy than most summer tires.

Re: new overland rims question
Probably more of a tire belt issue, but a tire expert needs to take a look. Tire pressure should be OK because you are not getting a warning indicator. Do they vibrate at 20mph only when cold or after its been sitting for a few hours, or is it at anytime you are near 20 mph?

Re: new overland rims question
tire belt??? everytime it hit 2o when im slowing down... to a stop im thinking it may be a balance issue.....

Re: new overland rims question
A miss assembled tire belt is a tire defect that could be the issue. Are you applying the brake when you feel the vibration, or do you feel the vibration regardless of using the brake?

Nothing wrong with double checking balance. Ask them to double check run out too.

Re: new overland rims question
Ok I only feel it when I'm hitting the point of 20 to b honest I think it may be the shift point, the balance and the fact that I had alot more rubber on my 17s could I just be feeling the road more, the vibrations are subtle nothing serious shaking

My gf says it's all in my head.... She drove it before and she has said that before :)
