Wicked shimmy in back end off + on at various speeds- bad tires or ?
Thought truck was going to fall apart at 30 then went away just to come back a little at 55. Haven't had wheels balanced in decades as the weights always fall off before I get home. Tread is about gone on one wheel aft.

It could also be an out of round tire, bent wheel, or a bad universal joint.

Bad tread wear on only one tire strongly indicates a bad shock absorber or other problem with the suspension.
The shimmy could be bad balancing, loose/damaged lugs, ice packed inside the wheel, or even a transmission problem like a failure in the operation of the torque converter.
A mechanic should drive and diagnose it.
