Totally agree Pigeon Roost!!Pigeon Roost said:its best to know the actual heavy spot of the wheel assembly
Great info Bulldog!!Bulldog said:Looks good to me. Caution: Those markings are not always 100% accurate. So if you have a dealer change a tire and the spot is not on the valve, don't shoot him, as long as the tire appears balanced.
Some folks take everything literally, to be the gospel. Well it ain't so!
Prior to balancing a rear GL1800 wheel, one might want to clean out the wheelbarrow full of brake dust that accumulates in the hollows of the wheel spokes.
Balancing is not a science nor is it magical. Balancing a tire/wheel is a + or - thing. Not accurate to .0000000000000001 grams.
Most weights come in 5 gram and 7 gram and 10 gram increments. Has anyone ever weighed a weight, to see how accurate it is? Not me for sure. Should this be done? Only if you are the anal type that requires absolute perfection in everything.
A very good rule of thumb!!Fred H. said:If your tire is taking more than 1.5 ounces to balance, you might try rotating it 90 degrees and rebalancing.
