Default Re: Vibrating at high speeds

Ok. I had the same exact problem in my 95 ranger when i went up from a 14 inch rim to a 16 inch rim and a tire 3 sizes larger. I was also also getting the vibrations around 55. About 6 months later my driveshaft gave way and the center yolk collapsed. Check your driveshaft and especially the joint. It will get worse over time. If it's not that then check your gear ratios in your axle.

Update: I took the truck back in today and had them rebalanced and one wheel was a little off which they fixed and now i have no more vibrating at 55+ mph.
