Anyone ever had this done? My X-Terrains are riding so rough that everything rattles and roars and vibrates and I get headaches driving my truck sometimes. I was told theres places that take your tires and shave the tread off til they are smooth and even again, also known as tire truing.. Any one had it done? whats the price on this?

Used to be a standard practice... I would stand and watch them shave 3K miles off my tires to make 'em round. Uh -- can you buy 'em round and save me a few bucks on the other end?

It dosen't cost that much, it is just hard to find someone with the equipment to do it. I had it done on a set of Goodyear all terrains, and it helped, but it took off almost 1/4" of tread to get them true- 6 months later I had to get new tires anyway.

yes, spelled "truing" i believe. I spent some time on the net lookin into it and its not as common as it used to be in the bias ply days, so not many places have the equipment for it anymore, like someone else said

I can't imagine that it costs that much. years ago we used to do it at Sears. They called it tire matching. The process was supposed to take any irregularities out of the tire/rim combo. If "regular" mounting and balance was $10 per tire then I think they charged $15 for mounting, tire matching, and balancing all together per tire.
