    I test drove both 4Rs and have a question about the wheel shake I’ve experienced with the Pro after reaching 60 MPH - is that normal?

    A lot of them seem to have balance issues from the factory. I had to have them road force balance mine and it fixed it.
    I’m on new tires now and still fine

    It also depends on how long it has been sitting. If mine sits a while I feel a shimmy for about 5-10 miles then all is smooth again.

    Mine did it when it was stock (SR5, not Pro).

    When I got new tires it completely went away.

    As mentioned above, it's usually a tire balancing issue. Our trucks are pretty sensitive when it comes to that.

    If a truck is sitting on the lot for a while, the tires could develop flat spots which will also give you the shakes.

    I would absolutely not pick it up with that issue though. It is beyond unacceptable to have that on any new car, never mind something that costs $40k. Get a promissory note for free road force balance and tire replacement if not resolved by balancing.

    Could be a flat spot for sitting too long, or could be bad balance , or even a defective tire that won’t balance right. Either way, should not be your hustle when buying a new car.
    Good luck

    ^^I buy many Toyota in the past. Sienna is mostly the problems , so what was weird is their alignment software never up to date. for example I buy 2016 got problem. the system don't cover that year, then 2019 again same problem , their system don't cover 2019. Even I go to Bridgestone tire last month, their software still not able to do alignment in my car. I ended up took to me friend who own High end body shop they updated theirs.

    Now this is my first time balance issues. I don't bother go back to dealer, cuz I was already wanted to replace TRD pro wheel.

    I read this issue many times before buying. When I test drove my 19 and 20. Each time I drove them up to 60 on a smooth road. salesman said it was the road... the 2nd runner on same road, same speed was smooth as silk so I bought it.
    On my 20 I made sure dealer had multiple runners fitted the way I wanted them. He had 6 gray ones. Again it took 2 and found a non shaker

    Went with the non-shaker - new to all this just didn’t want to deal with any issues out of the gate
