New Truck Owner - Went all in

Moved from Downtown Chicago to the Country of SE, North Carolina and bought me a 4x4 Tundra. Black 2015 Limited, Lifted on 20" Fuel's wrapped in Toyo Open Country 35's in really nice shape but a few things bugging me and I thought I could find some help here.

One thing in-particular is that when I'm up toward 80-90 MPH I'm feeling a rattle or shake and vibrations in the steering wheel. Could this just be wheels out of balance or something else? Any help would be appreciated.

Also, it came with a custom grill someone put on wrong and I can't find the manufacturer...perhaps when I can post a picture, someone might know.

Thanks!
Eric

Welcome to the forum. I replied on the other thread about the grille. Are you sure those are 35" tires?

Could just be a balance issue.

I am assuming you are talking about the pic of the first gen.

This old dog has about 37,750 on the clock. Mostly garaged and used to run errands to the Big Box store etc.

That grill is awful! I found a few replacements on CL, not sure how close they are to you:

Nice looking XSP-X

If the vibration is not severe, I'd guess its just a result of going 80-90 mph on fairly large all terrain tires. Problem is everyone has a different idea of vibration. Is this your first truck? If you're coming from sedans and suv's the Tundra's gonna feel a little different, especially at speed. Or it may need aligned. Is the front suspension stock?
