I did my ball joint recall service on my Tundra earlier this week. The truck was re-aligned. However, I had noticeable vibration through the steering wheel that was unacceptable. The truck was pretty smooth before the ball joint recall was performed. Minor vibration. I called Toyota and they pretty much gave me the run around saying the ball joints will not effect the way the tire wears on the road. I laughed at them and asked how they expect to sell cars and trucks saying crap like that. It was obvious that my tires were wearing differently on the road due to the ball joint change. Anyway, I could stand the vibration any longer. It wasn't a bad vibration but it still vibrated at speeds exceeding 60 mph. I called some local tire shops to see if anybody could "shaved" my tires which means true the tire to wheel for better wearing. I found a place in Pearland - Strouhaul Tire on 288. The tires were scalped pretty bad. I even did the 5,000 mile rotation. Kinda of surprised me. The tire guy asked me if I checked the tires before I bought them to make sure they were true. Good question. Never considered that. I was always under the impression you bought new tires they supposed to be true anyway. Otherwise they were considered BLIMS. They shaved about 2/32's off the passenger tire and 3/32 off the driver's side. I still have plenty of tread left on the tire. So, boys and girls, today lesson is make sure ask to see if your new tires are true before you purchased them. If they say yes automatically. Ask them you would like some documentation/proof this is so. I spoke with several people who have multiple years of experience with tires and it turns out that alot of people do not know this before purchasing tires. It is a big manufacturing issue with the tires and it is not uncommon to have a set that is not true before putting miles on them. Each tire on my truck had three low spots in the middle of the crown profile of the tire. Anyway, I thought this was good knowledge to pass on.
