Trxus Mud Terrains. All four tires have hops. Must be a manufacturing defect. When i go slow, i can feel the jeep going up and down at all four corners, it's ridiculous. It's shakes very bad at highway speeds. I had em balanced 4 times. 4wd hardware says i have to get a shop to print out the balance specs to prove they are not good but there are no shops around here that do that. Everyone has regular tire balancers.

You need someone that can "road force" balance those tires. Our dealership does that and so do many others. May also try a reputable tire dealer.

Went to the pick and pull and got me a front driveshaft for my sye. Also found a nice console, I didn't like just having a little box around the shifter.

Yeah looks like i'm not alone. These tires are known to be a hit or miss. Some have no issues, some do. I balanced them 4 times at 4 different shops and still have the same issue. Road force balancing won't do much for these cuz it appears they have a laterall run out and the only cure for that is to replace them. I'm working on that right now with 4wd hardware but if they won't replace em, then i'll have to sell em off as an off road set only.

Got new tires ordered. Changed my 6-month-old-super-black-oil and filter. I also changed the air filter, even though it was spotless. I'll hold the old one for spare. We need a spare for everything.
