    I'm still running the stock tires. Methods are the differance here. The balance isn't horrible like I have a bad wheel, but compared to stock its bad. The trucks passenger seat shakes noticablly at 75.

    I really hope this is an isolated incident and that Method takes care of it for you.

    Nice. I will try dynabeads first. There is no need to bring methods feet to the fire unless these don't work. The real problem may be how damn smooth this truck rode stock made me a bit spoiled. I will call method today though just to ask some qs.

    It says you CAN'T feed into valve stem with TPMS...

    I spoke with Sean @ Outlaw, he said they haven't heard ANY other issues or complaints about them. Might be an isolated incident?

    Blue is correct. I forgot that Ford went to the valve mounted sensors... Sorry about that

    I have the same problem had the tires and rims balanced twice still vibrates not as bad as the first time. I think it might be the simulated beadlock bolts being the problem. One of the rims needed nine ounces to get balanced.

    Well guys I rotated the tires last night for the first time. This was def the cause. I am thinking that the wear pattern on the fronts was rolling wierd with the different offset of the methods. Moved the fronts out back and she is smooth as can be again.

    Like I said my truck is only at 7,000 miles and still on the stock rubber. Gonna try dynabeads for my stang though...went to a motorcycle shop last night and those guys love them too.
