Rigcol Thanks for the input. I will be going back today and thankfully, am only being charged 5 dollars a tire and the tech will be working on it again today here on base. I will go back with the information I've learned.

Also called match mounting I believe.

This should have been done on the road force machine.

Rigcol-

The road force machine will give runout
Numbers for the tire and wheel and then the tech should of broke the bead and spunthe tire to match highs and lows. If the tech did not do this you got ripped off

I have 32x11.5 BFG at ko on black rock 15x8 aluminum rims. Would this be an example were spinning them would be required and what is does spinning mean. Thanks in advance.

wwch99tj Yes anytime you dismount a tire it will need to be rebalanced

WXman Tires are slightly imperfect and so yes, if they are flipped around they will need to be rebalanced again. Sometimes they have to spin the tire on the wheel to get it to balance smooth.

Balance Tires

Currently I have the white lettering of my tires facing out and would like to have them turned around to face in. I stopped by a small shop locally and asked about doing it and was told that they also would need to be re-balanced can any confirm or deny this? I did a search but only found topic with people having trouble balancing certain types of tires or the age old argument of how often to balance. Thanks in advance for the help.
