Dually tire shake, balance question?

I am a trader and went to the dark side, but i this is my favorite forum regardless of what truck i own. I hoping for some help please. I have a 14 ram dually, just put 22.5 wheels on, shaved to a 22" with fuel mt 35x12.50r22 tires. The look is not for everyone, but i love it.

The issues is a terrible perodic vibration from the rear tires. These wheels cannot be balanced like regular wheels, as they are for a semi truck! The truck at 60mph+ will ride smooth as glass for about 4 seconds, then it shakes pretty bad for 4 seconds, then back to smooth. Its driving me crazy. It shakes bad enough at 65 that the seatbelts lock! I have tried air pressure adjustments, lug nut torque, and on advice from many added 20oz of antifreeze in each tire to help balance them. No change. I can watch them shake in my mirrors. The fronts are perfect, no shake at all.

What makes tires sync up, ride nice for a few seconds, then turn to crap for a few seconds?

I was guessing, out of round tire, balance or bent wheel? But wouldnt these cause tire shake at the time?

Thanks for any help. I miss my ford but love the new ram
