Would help if you posted the trucks you are trying to have the tires balanced on and the tire sizes.

The first is the 06 f 150 super crew in my signature it has 22" chrome wheels 35" tires 12" wide had oem 18" stock rims and tires but went to those because ford and the tire shop kept pointing the finer at each other and finally ford told me it was the original rims that had issues. So if I was to buy rims I got aftermarket and payed less than oem price. Still didn't help problem after bringing into ford shop and $3200 and many parts later problem still there. Decided to buy another truck. Picked up a 2012 f250 xlt fx4 package all stock including 18" chrome clad wheels and stock tire size. Got the truck Friday that passed. From then till today I have had wheels balanced twice and still shimmy shimmy. I am at a loss and don't know what to do. I can't help but think that I am stuck with another headache

The first thing I would do is find another tire shop with a good balancing machine and see what happens when they balance them.

Do you have a shop around that has a road force balancing machine? These units have the ability to check if there is something wrong with the tires as well as balance.

U can have just the rim spun and see how balanced it is. Sometimes the tires will have to broke back off and spun around the rim to get to a lower amount of lead weights. Also try the package of beads that balance tires that go inside the tire. Have heard a lot of people like them with oversize tires. Not sure about the TPMS.

You didn't really explain much about the tires. Brands, tread patterns, load rating, and ply rating all have a part in your ride.
