I'd pull the wheels off and check them. After that I'd say a bad tire. I know if we use more than 2 ozs on a motorcycle tire we have to take the tire off and re-mount it. That usually fixes it.

it sounds kinda weird, but if you take it back to whoever you had put them on and have them break down the wheel/tire and spin it 180 degrees then re-enflate and balance it'll probably take care of it.

My SIL is a tire guy. I also have a buddy that runs another tire store.
Discussing larger more aggressive tires with them, they both said, you get a higher percentage of tires that are harder to balance. That being said, if your wheel is good, a good tire guy will immediately rotate the tire around after he has a hard time trying to balance it which will help reduce the amount of weights required. Sometimes it's just impossible.

I will say my 295/70/18 Terra Grapplers on my stock TRD wheels required very few weights to balance out.

6.5 ounces isn't all that much especially on an aftermarket wheel. I run a tire shop and sell 200-300 wheels a month. Tundra are very specific vehicles. The should be balanced being cloned from the backside with finger plates on the front side. This will mimic the wheel on the truck. Also when they balance ask if you can watch. Pay attention for side to side run out or up and down hop. More than about 1/8 side to side or 1/4 up and down can cause a vibration but jot usually

If the risk are new it's unlikely you will have a bad rim. After you determine if you have excessive turnout then pay attention to the rim flange while it's on the balancer and watch for movement. Only at the rim flange not in the barrel. The rim flange should have almost no visible movement. No more than just a few thousandths. Tires have a much looser tolerance than wheels.
