Same here. I have a Ď19 SR5(with 2k miles). It has been in 2 times. The most recent time(last week) they put new tires on it(shitty Dunlopís). Itís doing the same old steering wheel shake between 55-70mph. Itís going back in tomorrow.

My 2016 did this until I finally ditched the OEM Duellers at 15K miles, no one was able to get those things to balance. Wildpeaks have been smooth for 30K+ miles...

Angry

Update: Dropped off my truck last night and today they called. Said the local Dunlop rep actually was there. Put a new tire on performed the road force balancing and called me. Got there drove with the service tech. Not even a 1/4 mile down the road it was trembling again with him in the car! Three times! I had a serious discussion with the sales manager. I demanded they put different tires on or I wanted my money back. He told me they were going to keep the service ticket open and have some Toyota ďguruĒ come into town to go through it and in the meantime open a ticket with Toyota to get them to cover the new tires. I called and raised hell. They are having a manager on their side contact me tomorrow. We shall see. I am not happy about this situation, but more so how they are not doing anything with other peopleís trucks. Itís apparent Toyota knows this is a big issue and I feel they are trying to keep it hush hush. If your truck is still under warranty I strongly encourage you to bring it in.

Its crazy because I test drove a Premium and it did it. Then I drove a Tacoma TRD Pro and it did it. My current TRD Pro does not. I drove Jeeps with 37's and not a hint of a shake so it sucks that it happens with 4R's.

It is a known problem with the FJCruiser as well. Been living with it since 2011 on ours. It is dependent on road surface- we have a section of newly paved interstate near us- both our new 19 4runner and the 11 FJ do it there. Other places it is fine. FYI my other 3 vehicles don't do it anywhere.
On the FJ Toyota came out with a "fix" involving placing a stronger spring in the steering rack that applies pressure to, IIRC, the rack to hold back the vibes a little. It does help but does not eliminate it.

On our FJ I too found tire placement is critical- once you get a smooth ride you best not rotate them unless you want to do a bunch of playing around to get it smooth again.
To be clear it still does it on some roads even though it is perfectly smooth on other roads.

Wildpeak AT3's

How about this? Go test drive a new 4runner in your dealers inventory. Does is shake? If NO, then install those tires and wheels on your 4runner, drive it. If it shakes, its not the tires. If it is smooth, then you have a tire issue.

I have SCS wheels with Falken AT3 275/70/17's and everything is Super smooth. 2018 TRDOR with 13K

So a follow up on mine.....spent a good part of the day at the dealer today. Test drove 2 Ď20 SR5ís with the same wheels and tires as mine....1 had the shake and 1 didnít.

Tech drove both the Ď20ís and mine to confirm. They took the wheels/tires from the one Ď20 that had no shake and put them on mine and guess what? NO SHAKE!!!

They believe it to be a bad batch of SR5 wheels.

SO....letís hope this solves the problem. Hope this helps others!

Many many times, it's actually the wheels. Many cheaply made cast wheels due to how the mold is cast results in irregularities. They can put them on a tire balancer and never show any wobble, however the spotted weight can throw it off more than a wheel weight can compensate for. People can blame it on tires, but a lot of the time it's just shotty wheels. You don't get much of these issues with forged wheels. Once in a while, you'll get a crappy cast wheel.

Steering Wheel Shake since 6 Miles on my 20' Off-Road Premium!

Took in Monday to have assessed. No big deal right wheel weights were off on three of four wheels. I figured may have fallen off in transit to dealer or test drive etc. Well I picked up and have been driving and now its back again! Has anyone experienced any issues like this? Wondering if it's a bad tire. My truck came with the Dunlop's. One of my buddies who is a Toyota Tech mentioned a local recall on some models with the Wrangler's but I have yet to hear anything on the Dunlop's.



I love my truck, but kind of crazy to have these issues with so few miles. Thoughts?


Picked up mine last Monday (venture ed with trd wheels) very light vibration at 60-65mph. It was resolved by rebalancing the front 2 tires.

If they are still using those AT20 dunlops take them off and put them in the trash. Worst tires I have ever had. 2 new Tacomas and my 4Runner came with them. Every time they weren't on the vehicle for long. My 11 was a CPO and it had a brand new set on it when I bought it. I had a new set of General Grabber ATX's sitting on the loading dock before I took delivery of the truck. About the only good thing about those tires is they are quiet.

Anyone wanting to ditch the Dunlops may check with Discount Tire- I took my 2 day old 19 TRDORP in to get a quote on putting on KO2's. They gave me $100 credit for each of the Dunlops- so $500 off the new KO2's.

New '19 TRDORP. Test drove 3 before I got in one that didn't shake or wander. Scared the sales rep to death during the test drives. Coming up on 5K now and it's smooth. Got about 250 miles off road on pretty rough beach during a 10-day vacation. Was expecting that to trigger some issues but it didn't. I know it's a pain, but you paid good money for that 4R. Get the dealer to listen to you. Have your sales rep help you. Document all of it. Be civil and make them make you happy. BTW, they tried to tell me that the "soft tires sitting so long in the lot" was the culprit. They know there's a problem. They have to wait on Toyota to tell 'em what to say and do. Put it in 4WD and enjoy the ride. That's why you bought it, right?

Post the documentation with what they state is the issue and solution. Let me take a look and see if I can help.

Any correspondences that occur over the phone or in person are fine, you should however request it also be written. Usually insisting that they email you with a breakdown of the conversation had earlier will suffice. Be sure to reiterate your concerns, echo their solutions and key points, and keep an organized roll of said emails.

I read about this before I bought so made a point of a test drive requiring 60mph. 1st test drive shook. salesman said it was the road. They had an identical runner that I drove next, same road, same speed and was smooth as silk. salesman didn't know what to say but I bought the one that didn't shake

I also drove several. With KDSS, without. SR5. ORP. PRO. Limited. I chose the one that didn't feel like it was all over the place.
