70 mph vibration 2013 wrangler A/T tires

Just curious new Wrangler Unlimited changed out to someones brand new 18" Bridgestone wrangler a/t, steering wheel vibrates a bit at 65-75, just wondered if anyone had these tires and had issues, weights are on them but he removed sensors but i cant see tires shifting that much removing them.

What better for a first post than to be helpful. Its just a tire balance issue. Taking out the sensors removes weight from the tire. Find a bridgstone dealer, they may rebalance them for free being their tires.

Edit. Little info it only takes .5ounce to bring a tire out of balance

Everytime I sell a jeep I say no more then a new one shows up in my driveway

yea, they need rebalancing would be the first thing since it is rather new.

Most vibs that are other issues happen in the 45-55mph range. They do mine free anyway at Discount since that's were we get anything tire related. I chew these tires up a bit in rocks so to keep a fair balance means about every 6K or two rotations.

Got to a local "Tires Plus", "Tire Kingdom" or whatever tire chain stores you have in your area. Spend $70 for a lifetime rotation and balance plan. You can then get the tires rotated and balanced as many times as you like and as often as you like!
