I the shaking is felt in the seat I would supect your tire being out of round of rim bent.Front end problems (loose ball joints, worm tie rods, bell cranks etc) is felt in the steering wheel. Did you check for the tire being out of round? Or check to see if the wheel wobbles?


The tire shop who ive been dealing with warrantied the 2 driver rear tires and did 2 new rims. They said the tires werent seating correctly. The problem didnt change. If it is an out of round tire/rim, its the passenger side rear. Im about to buy 2 new rear rims and make them warranty 2 more tires just to confirm.

Im at another truck tire shop having all the tires dismounted, cleaned of equal powder, and re mounted and roadforce balanced. We’ll see how it is on the drive home.

These equal bags never disintegrated in the tire. Theres a few thousand miles on these at this point. I dont see how this stuff could work.

The bags just break to allow the equal flow to the circumference of the tire. Your picture just shows broken bags so they did what they were suppose to do. Many would argue that fixed weights are better and equal could harden do to moisture and throw the balance off, but that does not appear to be your case. Hopefully your new tires and rims fix your problem.

I just dont see how the beads could distribute properly with the bag in the way. Its a cheap easy way to balance tires but from experience and research the bags are a gamble.

Anyway the truck drives MUCH better with the actual balance weights. I think my problem is solved. I’ll see how the next trip goes. Thank you and everyone else for the help!

Did not see that in your first picture, but that would cause a problem. Hope the weights fix the problem permanently.
