Just in the past few weeks I got the lift installed on the Commander. About a week later I installed the wheel spacers and new tires. The first vibrations I noticed was when I got the new tires installed. It was odd because it wouldn't be much noticeable one day but the next it was pretty drastic. I put up with this for a week and it keep getting gradually worse. Going back to the tire shop they said 2 were out of balance a little and rebalanced.

For about a week, she ran smooth. Now in the past few days I have noticed an off and on vibration at higher speeds. If the vibrations were directly related to speed I would have no about it is a tire balance issue, but changing day to day I just cannot figure out.

Anyone experience this before or have any ideas?


Oh, the tires I ended up getting are Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor

Which lift? What size tires? I have the same tires currently, but I guess any tire can come out of production with defects.

Did the wheel spacers make it noticeably worse?

Wheel spacer won't cause that issue if torqued properly

X2 on the torque but if they extended distance from wheel to suspension it could certainly make the issue worse.... That will rule out if its a wheel issue or suspension issue.

I have the OME HD lift. Tires are 265/65/18 on factory wheels using the Spidertrax 1.5" spacers.


For the past several days it has been fine even at interstate speeds. It just seems on occasion i get a bad vibration as if the tires are out of balance.

Might want to get the tire balance checked. Did you get them balanced at the dealer?
