I don't buy tires online either do the hassle if problems arise.

America's Tire / Discount Tire retail stores even pricematch Tire Rack so there is no point buying from Tire Rack.

I have an appointment with Firestone that continues saying vibration associated with this kind of tire is to be expected on a "nice 2020 4 Runner". They say that knowing the vibration was a result of their initial work not being adequate, and the the vibration was gone the second time I brought it back to them. I have asked Firestone to schedule my car in for balance and potential alignment. But they say alignment has nothing to do with vibration - which is not what some here are saying.

I am very sorry that I bought these tires online. My advice is to other people to buy tires locally and from a high-end vendor. I am thinking about getting the vibration fixed and then selling the car with the tires on it and get something else. But the prices have gone up a lot, I presume.
Did you also static balance them?

Sounds like what I went thru!! I fixed my problem and it was not the tires, a balancing problem or wheel alignment.

Any update on this? Did you figure out the steering shake? I just put method 701s and 265 wild peaks on my 2020 sr5 and after 2 balances, I still have the shakes going 50mph or faster. Wondering if you were able to find a solve.

I was wondering why these ship with such low tire pressures (34 PSI) to attenuate any shakes?
