Default Re: Wheel Balance

I have to agree with Bairdco. Some time back I suspected a balance problem and did the fishing sinker thing to fix it (no slime back then). After perfect balance my vibration was still there. Turned out to be el cheapo Target bike tire.

Just for the heck of it (mad scientist syndrome) I purposely weighted the wheel WAY out of balance. Guess what... no vibration. I had about half pound of lead on that rim before it became noticeable. And still wasn't the same as a bum tire.
