Balancing interco tsl/ssr swampers

Super swamper tsl/ssr 31x12.50x15
They are nice tires, run them on mickey thompson classic 2s 15in by 12in wide rim. My problem is they wobble and shake at 55+ mph. I have had them balanced. Its not a problem of death wobble. Is this common problem are there any fixes?

Radial or bias? And that's a lot of rim

You need a friendly tyre dealer and time. Pull the tyres off and balance the wheels alone. Refit tyres, if any need more than 150grams, turn the tyre on the rim to get the minimum weights, fixed. Takes time but should cure wobble and cheaper than alternatives. When buying new rims, always get them on a balancer bare, if they need more than 50gr then send them back. I got through 8 BFG`s because they eventually admitted they had a manufacturing problem, Europe only I hope!

Air soft bb. But 31s shouldn't be that hard.

I had a friend balance the tires awhile back, trusting he would have done best he could. I think the 31in ssr's call for 9in wide rim. I like the look on a wider wheel. Will take the tires in for a road force balance to compare any difference. After my jeep gets out of the shop.
