Balancing help.....

mounted American Force 22" Super Singles with 325/50/22 Toyo AT's. They require an 8 to 10 lug adapter. They have been bagged twice by different shops and they have been in an 18 wheeler balancing pit. The rear end still pops up and down at 48mph to 54mph and then again 68mph and above. How often are the tires out of round from the factory? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh, it's a 2005 F250. Thanks Jonny

Often, put an indicater on it, or at least jack up the wheel, pull up a cinder block, get out the tape measure and check the high and low spots.
I have seen 3/16s out of round. If they are new the vendor may fix it, but if not, there are tire truing machines for truck tires.
Run 500 miles on them so they are not new and subject to changing shape and get them trued.
Or set up a body grinder with a 36 disk and a rest and ease in and grind until it is round enough that it does not bounce. Then go get them balanced.
On a loaded truck 1/16 works ok but 1/8 can often be noticed on duals, letting them run that way generates some interesting wear patterns.
