Notice slight vibration on highway over 60 mph. First inclination is that tires may need high
speed balancing. Any thoughts on other possible solutions???

Balance, check alignment, how are your front rotors/pad? When you put the brake on, can you stop without steering wheel vibrating?

Thanks Tom. There is no vibration what so ever when brakes are applied therefore I believe it is not rotor related. It appears at this time to only occur on the highway when vehicle speed reaches 60 to 70 mph. Used tires on the truck seem to be wearing evenly up to this point. We did purchase through a dealer so I do not know how long these tires have been on the vehicle. They are not new tire judging by the condition of the sidewalls. Will have tires balanced or replaced and see if problem persists.
