Post Help with Jeep?
I think a belt is busted in one of the tires on my Jeep, but there are no bulges in any of the tires. Is there any way to figure out which it is without swapping the spare out for each till I find it?

When I worked for sears auto center, we would have to take them to boyd county ford. They have a road force machine that can tell you all sorts of interesting things about your tires. Or at least they used to.

As far as free options, other than swapping like you mentioned, I don't know.

If a belt is broke, it should throw it out of balance and if it is a front one, u would feel it in the steering wheel.

Could it have just thrown a weight? Especially if it is a larger mud tire they use a lot of weight, and would give a vibration... which is what I am assuming you are feeling.

Maybe look for signs of a missing wheel weight (it'd be a clean spot on my wheels :roll: )

It isn't a weight. I have balancing beads in them and at speed they are ok, it is going slow, 25 or less they I can feel the tire. It's been like that since I bought them and even before the balance beads

Have them road force tested. If I had a dime for every Goodyear truck tire we had to road force test and then send back to the factory because it was made out of round or had a bad belt from the factory, I'd be a rich man.... It happened on other brands too, but Goodyear truck tires seemed to be the worst. Probably one out of every 4 was bad from the factory.

I don't know what brand yours are, I'm just using Goodyear as an example.

Not to derail this thread, but how do you like the beads? I could use a solution for balancing my tires.

Those are known for being out of round from the factory. On my crawler I use to always have them road force balanced when I drove it on the street. Since I'd always rip the weights off the tire shop got to know me pretty well.

Also might be worth checking the ball joints and wheel bearings. These don't hold up to well on the D30 axle when mud is involved. I usually got through a set of bearings each season and I really do my best to stay out of mud.
