maybe you should try having them rebalanced just a thought it shakes the snot out of you between 60 and 70 mph. was it too late to rotate will it smooth out over time or should i put them back where they were and forget rotating them. p265 75r 15 criss cross rotation. thanks. .

possibly you had different tire pressures from front to back and now your tire pressures are backwards -tim ok i went a little long on rotating my tires. they have 15k on them. before i rotated them there was no problem and a smooth ride but after rotating them it shakes the snot out of you between 60 and 70 mph. was it too late to rotate will it smooth out over time or should i put them back where they were and forget rotating them. p265 75r 15 criss cross rotation. thanks. .

i agree im ford through and through but that power joke has nothing on the 5.9 cummins. we have 4 of them at work and they will run circles around the fords when it comes to doing real work. now looking pretty and going to the mall get the ford. -- steve ======================= remove the not dot from my address to abuse my email box the response from cdr appears to be from someone misinformed about the cummins diesel. before you consider any of these three brands read the discussion forums dedicated to the three brands http//www.turbodieselregister.com/ http//www.thedieselstop.com/ http//www.thedieselpage.com/ diesel! if you are going for the bigger truck you will be disappointed in fuel mileage on a regular gasoline engine.even the v-10 on fords it is a fuel leak loaded empty. also the duramax diesel is foreign and has aluminum blocks stay away from the fire! and you wont get burned dodge has the cummins diesel and if you like going slow and not pulling much weight go there. the f-250 or f-350 is a truck! im cross-posting here to try to solicit your opinions on the type of trucks you drive. im in the market to buy a new truck and am just now starting to compare my choices for the pros and cons. im considering the dodge ram 2500 ford f-250 and the silverado 2500 all 4 doors. i would like to hear from those that already own these models as to your likes and dislikes and also what you wish it had or didnt have as far as features and capabilities. also diesel vs. gasoline. im hoping to make a purchase within the next 7 to 10 days. im currently driving a 97 suburban and will be trading it. may also consider buying a new 03 or 04 suburban as well. any drivers out there willing to add your two-cents worth on this one thanks for your help and input. danny .

when the hell did a 1987 camaro become relevant in a question about a sunroof on a pickup truck since you obviously have reading comprehension difficulties ill put the part of the post i replied to here jason i would strongly recommend against having an aftermarket sunroof installed on any vehicle! thats where it came from. thanks for playing. .

you wouldnt notice your rear tires being out of balance as much as the front ones. you rear tires were out of balance and now you just really notice them since they are now on the front. get them all rebalanced life will be good. ok i went a little long on rotating my tires. they have 15k on them. before i rotated them there was no problem and a smooth ride but after rotating them it shakes the snot out of you between 60 and 70 mph. was it too late to rotate will it smooth out over time or should i put them back where they were and forget rotating them. p265 75r 15 criss cross rotation. thanks. .
