Vibration from 50-70MPH

Hi Guys,

I am new to the whole Jeep thing but was looking for some imput. When i get on the highway i get a vibration through the Jeep. Its only from about 50-70MPH. I dont feel it in the steering wheel or the brake pedal. What else could it be? Its a 2002 Sahara 5spd and has the stock 30" tires. They were just replaced about 3k miles ago.

Thanks

Jon

Did you have that vibration before you got the new tires? A large percentage of " vibrations" come from poorly balanced tires. You might consider having them checked and possibly rebalanced.

Check the torque on the lugs too, they need to be re-tightened about 100 miles after replacing tires.... 100ftlbs...

Speed sensitive vibrations are nearly always tire related. Even when my local Discount Tire shop did my regular rotate and rebalance of my 35" tires & claimed they were "perfect" when I was leaving, I often had to come back with a speed sensitive shimmy or vibration and insist they rebalance them more perfect.
