Funny, I get that now after they replaced the Stabilizer links on recall.
I will have to go out and see if a balance weight is gone........
This is why I tell the techs to mark the tire location before rotating
tires. If the car pulls or has a vibration complaint, they can put the
tires back where they were and see if that corrects the issue.
It's difficult to get tires properly balanced in today's marketplace.
Everyone is in a hurry. If the shop pays flat rate, the job is never
done properly. I've watched techs balance tires using the single spin
and balance method to save time. It usually results in a complaint.
There is never enough time to do it right the first time, but there is
always time to do it over. The 2nd spin method works best, if the tech
actually uses it and corrects the measured imbalance when the machine
picks it up. Some will do the 2nd spin to check if they located the weight
in the correct spot, but allow a 1/4 ounce out to hit the street.
I mount and balance all my own tires. I balance down to 1/10th
of an ounce and never have problems. My motorcycles are never
allowed to have tire balance issues. 100+ MPH will really make a
poorly balanced tire feel like a bent wheel.
Costco it the biggest offender of poor balancing practices.
They did the wife's car and 2 tires were out by more than .75 of
an ounce. @ 70 MPH the mirrors were vibrating.
I had to re-balance all 4 tires myself to fix it.
