[DML] Re: Wheel Balancing Damage

IMHO balancing 0n-Car is NOT the way to go. Too many variables, from
the quality of the bearings to the surfaces of the rim and rotor, etc.
Also you can never take the tire off unless you put it EXACTLY back in
the same position. It will only cover up a problem with the running
gear on the car. If you have vibrations or an out-of-balance condition
that is only correctable by on-car balancing then you should figure
out what the problem is and get it fixed (like a bad C/V joint in the
back). When a wheel assembly (tire and rim) is properly balanced on a
machine you should have no problems. Any quality spin-balancing
machine should be able to balance well enough. Of course you need to
have a good tire and the rim cannot be bent. It should have the
correct air pressure in it and ALL the weights MUST be removed before
balancing. For those who are picky about wheel weights you can get the
ones with adhesive tape but if the machine says to put it on the side
that shows there is no other way to properly balance the assembly.
Once balanced it should hold unless you bend the rim or have a bad tire.
