Thanks for moving this to the correct forum.

Not sure if this will help you guys or not but.......

I had and the shop I frequent had been rotating my tsl SX's front to back and keeping the rotation the same.
For what ever reason I had always though that bias tires had to be kept on the passenger or drivers side so the rotation was not reversed.
I ran out today to a buddies garage to use his set up to rotate tires and dick around with the jeep. He suggested I rotate them in the normal X pattern.
Which I did as I trust him, and my SW tick is gone and the tires are riding glass smooth.
The only thing I can come up with is the outer lugs had been worn more to the rear of the lug and some how this was creating a lateral shimmer which was F'ing with the tires.
This may be a known issue for some of you so please take it easy on me.
I was honestly amazed that simply reversing the rotation would fix the tick in the SW and the weirdness above 75 mph so I am stoked.

Swampers sound nice at 80! Especially when they are riding like BFG radials.

Seeing is believing

I use steel BB's in all of my vehicles and have for years. I haul cars for a living an I couldn't keep wheel weights on my trailer tires as they would just disappear and the flat spots caused by tight turns would negate any traditional static wheel weights any way, they run smooth and quiet and wear evenly.
