I just repaired a vibration on a 2005 Super duty for a friend. Dealer said it was nothing but when I drove it i knew what it was. It was the hanger bearing on the rear driveshaft. But this was a vibration not a stiff ride

Look and see how much weight they have on it. Sounds like a bad tire and they have 7 or 8 oz of weight on it to try and get by.
My Toyo's were like that and now with the Beads inside the tires it a lot better.
If I have the air up there for a full load they do good. But drop the air pressure down for the empty ride and its unreal how bad they shake.
You can bet the next set of tires will go back and they will trade them out. This set I was in bed with my back for 3 months after getting them installed so it was my fault.

Rotate the tires and see if the vibration moves or stays the same. If it stays the same it is not the tire/wheel assembly and you will have to look at the drive train.

I have a 2008 F250 and I have that. It goes away with the 5th wheel hooked up. It is a characterstic of most F250/350s. Go to ford-trucks.com and you'll read lots of threads about it. Most can't get rid of it. Some have tried new heavy duty shocks or air bags. I had my tires road balanced, rotated and air bags put on. Didn't dissappear. It is a combination of a specific speed and a frequency thing. I've learned to live with it.

Drop your rear tire pressure to about 50 psi and the rough unloaded ride will soften up. Air them back up when you load it back up.

Chock the wheels, jack up the rear and put it in drive. Thought I had a carrier bearing bad but found a tire out of round because of a broken belt.
