I sincerely hope this fixes the problem for those affected. But I'm skeptical.

For owners like myself who do not have this issue, I wouldn't change anything. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

While most of us knew how to properly torque the wheels, I bet none of us suspected that a position of the hub can make a difference, or does it? I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

BTW: The PDF file is attached to my post #24.

Does anyone have 21' rims, and if so, is the shake also happening?

Got 21s on but have also had 19s and 18s none of which has ever given me issues with wheelshake/vibration. My old GU Nissan Patrol however, well that was another story alltogether. Just about get RSI of the wrists. John

Ah the power of the Internet and CT. Great job JEC for finding and posting the TSB! Hopefully this solves this major annoyance for so many here.

I absolutely HATE any shimmy/shake in a steering wheel.

Seriously doubtful of this. 2013 on second set of tires (factory - Pirelli Scorpion Verdes, replacement @27K miles - Bridgestone Dueler Alenza H/L Plus 255/55/19 non-N0 Porsche spec). No shakes with normal balancing, rotation, and only honoring 130 lb lug torque spec, never checked hub position, etc.).

This has to be tires.
