New rear tyre fitting question

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by CamKawa, Feb 10, 2006.

  1. I got a new rear tyre fitted on Monday. It doesn't have any balance weight on the rim. Should all balanced tyres have a weight on them? I saw the tyre changer put it on the balancer. The rim was also filthy dirty, does that make any difference to balancing ?

  2. Some tyres are just "perfect" from the get go.

    You got a good one.
  3. yeah the tyre would have a heavy spot, but so does the rim. you might find that the spot is marked on the tyre with a small coloured dot. the rim should have a mark as well. the tyre fitter would've mounted these opposite to eachother and must've found that the assembly didn't need any more balancing weights.
  4. if it doesnt wobble or do anything wierd, i'd say you were just lucky
