I have a 2013 double cab 4x4. I just replaced the stock 18" style steel wheels with these 20" TRD Style Wheels 5x150 Silver Rim Fits Toyota Sequoia 2008 09 10 11 12 | eBay.

The truck only has 300 miles on it, now at 60 mph to about 70 mph there is a significant shake in the steering wheel. The tires were balanced at sts but I actually had to put them on the truck myself after I picked them up. They didn't stock the lug nuts I needed. I used these lug nuts
20pc 07 13 Toyota Tundra Long Type Lug Nuts 14mm x 1 50 | eBay.

Even though the rims say the hub is 110 which is stock toyota, the wheels didn't seem to center themselves nicely when installing, but the lugs seemed to tighten nicely and even everything up. Could I have the wrong lugs on? Tires not balanced properly? The tires are falken 275/60/20

Along with this my gibson exhaust i just installed has horrible drone, but that's for another thread!

Thanks for any help

Also, I remember searching for pics of these wheels before I bought them, I believe a member called toyota kid 86 or something to that effect had these wheels on his white tundra, maybe I could pm him and ask what lugs he's running? ( edit, he's actually on tundra solutions forum )

Thanks for the replies, I was thinking road force balancing. I'll give it a try. I have read about others having ongoing issues with wheels, hopefully this isn't my case.

Tanks again

Road forced balanced this morning, no more vibration! Not only that, but the ride is 100 times better. Previous installer was off by 4 ounces on each tire for balance, plus had the psi all wrong. It rides great now.

Thanks again for the suggestions

I agree, the mechanic today also stressed how important it s to try and get the same hub size, saying that hub rings are always difficult to get balanced.
