I did have the front passenger tire replaced. It had an inspection sticker put on just a few months ago also. They raised the Jeep up and checked the ball joints then. It passed.

    No not new but the tire place I bought it did balance it. I may have another tire out of balance seeing that the vibration is not in the front end.

    certain types of wear patterns will 'balance' okay on a machine but still cause vibration. Change the location of the replaced tire and see if that has an effect on the vibration (location or severity).
