Ok i'm lost this is my first jeep I have ever owned. i had a problem with my stock tires so they replaced them with 31-10.50-15 the tire wrangler rts I'm having a vibration coming from the streeing wheel and the gas pedal. I been to 3 different place the road force is good and the balance is off a little but they fix it. but i still get a vibration after all balance and everthing is good. a buddy i had says i'm going to get that because that's the feedback form the tires hitting the ground. he said if i go with a p rated tire it will go away he says it's like that now because it's a mud and snow tire. with don't ride all that smooth like a p tire will. greenway way says the samething but they was saying it's not the right size tire as well. he said i can stick with that size but i would have to go with a better tire like mich. ltx. now just wondering is this all true that i will get a vibration from these tires. it starts around 50-55mph then get more at around 65-80mph. and if so how can i get the vibration to chill out on my hands think a sterring wheel cover will work will i have to wear leather gloves. please help.

It's all pretty much wrong.

The vibration is not from your tire tread. It's not that aggressive.
The vibration is not from the slightly larger tires you have.
The vibration is not from an light truck rated tire (LT) versus a passenger rated tire (P).
A steering wheel cover or gloves will not help.

When was the last time you had your Jeep aligned? What were the specs? How much toe? Caster?

Try rotating the wheels and tires to different positions on the vehicle.

Yes, that's why I asked about your alignment.

If could be the tires still not balanced right but since you had them balanced and rebalanced, I'm going to assume they're right. Street friendly 31s are not usually hard to achieve a good balance on. I find it hard to believe it's the tires unless something is physically wrong with one or more of them...like a physical defect.

Those are the road force values??? Where is the 32 one located on the vehicle? How much weight is on each wheel to balance? Me thinks your tire shop doesn't know what the hell they're doing.
