    Why did you go with the TrXus-STS as opposed to maybe the TrXus-MT?

    it's 99% street driven.
    with our long winters, I wanted something with a decent amount of siping.
    the unique look.
    and 1 guy up here has a set on his F350 and said they do great in the winters, on the ice and snow.

    Ah gotcha gotcha -- they do look like they'd do pretty good in the snow.

    I sure hope so.
    if I can ever actually figure out what's wrong with the rims/tires so I can actually leave 'em on without destroying hub assy's.
    I swear to God 2-3 rims are out-of-round.
    shop I've been dealing with balanced 'em 3 times. I told 'em of the issues I was having and they said "they balanced great"

    I need to find another shop up here that can replace ProComp rims under warranty, which is difficult...

    driveline vibrations can come from worn/blown CV shafts and worn out u-joints..... make sure those aren't the culprits.

    I can watch the tires wobble when I'm driving. I can watch the rear driver's side with my side-view mirror.
    And the wobble has been there with 2 sets of tires, 2 sets of axle shafts, and a 2nd axle housing.

    so I'm pretty sure it's not my truck :confused:

    oh I know it's the rims.
    the shop I was working with dicked me around.
    even though I didn't by the rims from them, they first told me (on 2 occassions) that they would be able to warranty out the rims.

    then, last weekend, they said they couldn't.

    this was after I paid them to balance the tires twice, telling them I'm pretty sure a rim(s) out of round the last 2 times, but they did nothing but balance and didn't even check for lateral or radial run-out.

    I have to ask-just from experience.

    Can I see a side shot please?
    ANother with the wheels turned?
    How can you turn corners?
    Did you trim the fender?

    I'm confused, because when my son's 4" suspension lift went on with 33's, we STILL had to trim a bit.
