    Heard a lot about it, experienced it in one of my 3 previous Traverses, but luckily nothing in the Tahoe.

    Just crossed the 20k mile threshold. No issues so far. Was doing 85mph in the rain on the parkway last night and had everything off (ac & radio). No booming. I'll be taking another highway drive next week. I keep looking for it just in case.

    It's a valid problem as i'm also victim @ my 2015 Tahoe. Range of vibration remain out of tolerance level.

    totally unexpected :oops:

    based on my experiences, prime speed for it occurring seems to be 45-60mph.

    2016 XL Denali with 22’s. No booming or buffeting, but I had a noticeable vibration around 75 mph with the stock Dueler tires. I just swapped them out for Michelin Defenders and had them Road Force balanced. Took 6 tires to get 4 within spec. Vibration is gone, it’s now smooth between 70-80 mph. Needless to say, I’m thrilled. Only been a few weeks so hopefully the smooth ride continues.

    nj16yukon, thanks for sharing that information. My 2017 does the exact same thing with only 15,000 miles on Duelers. I will see what the Dealer says about road force balancing the Duelers before switching to the Michelins. There seems to be some many different variables on what works and what doesn't.
