It would be worth it to check the left front wheel bearing, but at that speed could be looking at a balance issue. Post some pictures maybe someone can see something.

pressure was 40psi when I drove home.....I've put them up to 70psi right now. Also this could have been going on for awhile but my last tires were so loud I wouldn't of heard them.

Get the balance checked again. I know it's a silly question, but i've had it done to me, are all the lugs tight? I drove home from the tire shop one day with all 8 finger tight on the front right and ruined a rim. Needless to say, some heads rolled that day, it ended with the regional manager and me, I got 2 free tires, plus he bought me a new rim and put everything together and personally torqued the lugs himself. (in a suit and tie)

Wheel bearings maybe, but it seems to me like they'd always shake some... Maybe not though.

I'd say bad left front wheel bearing.

Did you find out what the noise was?

Shockley, I want to order my 295/70/18 terra grapplers but want to be sure they are going to clear everything on my stock 05 f350. I know some people say they will fit and not rub but I want to here it from somebody that has them mounted on stock 18" wheels. Can you post back. Thanks
