Steering wobbles

I have a 2015 and just put pro comp 305 65 17 tires on. Now my jeeps steering wobbles once I hit 40+ mph. What should I do to fix this. It also pulls a little bit to the right. I am going to put a 2 inch lift next week. I don't want to move forward until I know what I'm doing.

I would replace your front track bar with a beefier one. The OEM one tends to flex, i had same issue when I put on 35s and as soon as i changed the front track bar with an aftermarket on problem solved.

Ok thanks! Any one brand better then the other. I had someone tell me it's the steering stabilizer. Not sure what to think about that.

Wobbles are normally tire issues. I would check the balancing and pressures even though you just got them. I would search more if pro comps have a pull based on others, some tires have this issue.

You don't need an adjustable track bar with a modest 2" lift. Double check the torque on your bolts just for piece of mind.

one more thing to check since nobody else mentioned it and you did say new tires. If you have non-factory rims that are lug centric vs hub centric, they may not have been tightened down correctly and could be off center.

as others mentioned, definitely look out for any steering looseness (track bar bushing versus the bar itself, ball joins and control arm bushings) torque all of the aforementioned as well.

In addition to the advice already given, I would reiterate to definitely check your air pressure. It's amazing what a few PSI can do. Just for a reference point, I run my 37" MTR/Ks at 28 PSI.

Once had a shop mount a set of 33" ProComp Xterrains on my pickup. When I drove away it was terrible. Checked the pressure and they had sent me out with them at 52 PSI!
