The paint dot that the tire manufacture puts on the tire to indicate the heavey or light side of tire? If I remember right, AVON doted the light, and most everyone else doted the heavy part. Any good memmories out there?

I think each maker has his own; I have seen a nice reoprt of that here -- maybe Fred Harmon sent it - or BullDog -- I bet the "dog" knows. WIth Dunnies, align the yellow dot with with you rrim's heavy spot -- typically close to the valve stem. Avons are not marked. Metzelers have a red dot, but I dunno what it means. Bridgestone has yellow dot at light spot to align with or near valve stem.

But my memory may not be so good as it once was -- not even as good as it was once.

You usually put the dot in line with the valve stem.

Avons don't have any reference dots to my knowledge.

Hope this helps
