Road force balance?

Just picked up some new rims and tires.

Some Mickey Thompson 35X12X17 on Tracker 8, 17-8.5 rims

Is a road force balance needed? Or is a regular balance ok? It is my DD with a 3" lift.

Thanks

It's a 2 step process. RF cost more if needed.
The tire is balanced normally. If a lot of weight is needed the tech will RF the tire. From my experience most techs are idiots and try to charge you for a RF when its not done.
Also ... The tech should take their time, if needed rotate the tire on the wheel 180 to match highs and low spots.
