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

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!
