    Road Force Balance?

    Can any one recommend a shop to get a road force balance done? I am having a balance issue on my 35 in MTR/K's and Discount Tire cannot get it right and does not have the proper equipment for tires in this size. I am tried of going back to them.

    Prefere somewhere in the east valley.

    Thanks

    Friend had a high speed balance at the Discount at Power and 60, not sure if that is close to the same or not

    Discount should have no issues with balancing a 35" tire. They did my 37s with no problems at Frank Lloyd Wright and 101.

    Discount on Chandler and I-10 does them in that flavor just fine. Mine took almost 10 oz but balanced fine

    Most of the Discount tire's listed on the Hunter website do not actually have the road force machine. When you call them they just tell you we use the standard hunter static balance machines. $1,600 on ****ing tires and this is the **** I get. And most of the tech's there have no idea on how to use it if they did.

    What's the problem? Are they taking too much weight? If so, have them spin the tire on the rim 180*.

    The road force balance will tell you where to turn the tire on the rim for optimal performance. Should be able to warranty tires (if there under warranty) if it is unable to get the tire within spec.

    The road force machine forces a drum on to the tire and sees how round it is. then balances after. also checks the rim runout.

    Impossible is a word only to be found in the dictionary of fools

    The benefit here is that you should be able to tell if a tire has a manufacturers defect by balancing it, then placing it on the machine and see if it acts like it should while running on the road. If they can't get the tire to balance properly then it's probably defective.

    The tire shops that don't have them try to make it sound like they aren't necessary, don't work....yadayadayada. I have been able to get some balance problems solved with them that no one else could, after they tried to convince me I was just imagining vibration.
    Burn it and beat on it

    Yeah, that's actually what the last tire shop manager told me. "Road force balance is not going to do anything different".

    Yes, they did try a rotation with the balance. Made no difference.
