Update To Vibration/Bouncing At Highway Speeds

Well, the proof is in the pudding; We finally tested truck at highway speeds, towing our 5th wheel RV, which weighs about 12,000 pounds loaded, and has maybe 1500 lbs. on the 5th wheel.

Vibration problem solved! The extra weight apparently dampens out an imperfect rear tire out-of-roundness issue.

So it appears it is not a fuel related problem after all. So no superfluous "monitor" is not needed.

I guess I got a pretty good deal on my '07 F-350 Super Cab after all ($11,500).

Did I not tell you it was a tire balance issue. A very good dynamic tire balance machine would have detected that from the beginning. Glad you got it. :thumbup:

They may have one, but I doubt it. And doubt they will have as knowledgeable tech as a Discount Tire store or The TireRack.

I think that an RV dealer would have a more specialized balancing machine since it's more for 'recreation.'

there are lots of different levels of balancing machines (equipment) I would look for a good reputable shop that specializes in tires the staff will be more knowledgeable and the equipment better.
my old brother in law had a tire shop and he was always upgrading his balancing equipment and sending his techs to learn better techniques.
i trust my walmart to do oil changes but that is about it.
in fact they have become over priced on that of late so i really dont trust them to do that either

Surely you can't be serious! All tire shops have tire balancers. = FIXED

I also agree Wal-mart will not have the roadforce balancer that is required to complete this job properly.

Vibration problem completely gone = job completed properly.
