Long story short, a local shop mounted and road force balanced a new 325-18 B/F Goodrich K/O2 tire on a new Fuel wheel. Having seen NO weights on the wheel, I asked him if he'd actually balanced it. He said yes, but it was only "ten grams out" so he didn't put any weights on. I call BS, knowing that every tire I've ever had road force balanced took weight, big tires usually a lot. Anyhow, since I like to be sure, I took it to another shop to road force balance and the tech struggled for an hour with the one wheel, just to get it balanced on the Hunter machine. So, while it may be balanced, I now have dinosaur turds inside my wheel! A real "pile" of weight! Anyone think this was unavoidable or could the tech have approached this another way to end up with less weight, or, at minimum, not piled up in mountains? These things look like they're asking to fall off.....
