Moved to General for better visibility.

Once a tire has been balanced, more than likely it will stay balanced until it gets remounted to an unbalanced (rotor, driveshaft, or hub).

Can you narrow it down to which wheel is doing it?

If you can, raise each rear wheel off the ground. Grab the tire at the 6 and 12 o'clock position and push pull to check for play. Do the the same thing again at 9 and 3'clock position. Do this for each wheel. You need to check for play in the wheel bearings, and check for play in the suspension itself.

If you find nothing, rotate your tires to the front to see if the shaking follows the rear tires.

If the rear end still shakes, I would look at the possiblity of warped unbalanced brake drums.

If the front end shakes now after the rotation, find another tire shop to balance your wheels.

Never had a problem with mine, and wore them down to bald. I do like the Goodyear gForce'* better. They have more grip, but you pay with alot less mileage wear. I had trouble with some tires on my truck. Took them back and the guy redid them but said it was the tires. the front still shook. Took it to another shop and they got them right on and told me it was the previous balancer, not the tires. Whatever the tire, it should be able to be balanced. I know alot of shops just weight one side and go. This doesn't always work out on the road when larger weights are needed.

I bought a set of Aurora H107s and I love them. Tread life isn't that great but the grip and price were excellent. Aurora is Hankook'* cheap brand.
