    Hey everyone, I've had my 2019 4runner for almost a month now and put about 400 miles on it. Ive noticed that a steering wheel wobble or shimmy starts at around 60mph and goes away at or around 65mph. At other speeds it's fine. Anyone else have this issue? Taking it to the dealer next week but would like to have a little insight as to what it might be.

    Stock wheels/tires?

    I would start with a roadforce balance.

    its more common with new 4runners than you think for the factory tires to have a balance issue . Mine is doing it too. The AT3w's are going on next weekend.

    Is the dealer replacing your originals?

    I'm sure they would if they tried to ballance them one more time and couldn't. Not a big deal because the Falkens go on next weekend

    Yes my brand new 2019 SR5 Premium is doing it and dealer had tried to correct it for a total of 3 days. I’ve stayed twice now I want new tires and get crickets. “Bring it in and leave it with us” is what I am getting now yet again.

    I had it in my 2005 SR5 with 150,000 miles, but got it to go away. Wheel bearing will do it. Bad tie rods. Don't know what would do it on a new 4 runner.
