17 pounds I mentioned you may still feel... 10 is pretty good. Many Michelin's on a good rim can get down to a couple of pounds.
Rim matching the tire is offsetting the heavy side of the tire and the heavy side of the rim.
Also if it is a Hunter, it needs an outter rim adapter for the 20s (no ledge)
Good info. So when you say some tire companies do not respect the 24 lbs centrifugal force, the tire company might say that over 24 lbs would still be in spec? Am I understanding this right?
I understand the rim matching, I asked about this and got a response that led me to believe the dealer employee didn't know what that meant. Not good.
I am going to spend some time talking to the service guys when I go in this time and get them to understand what the vehicle is doing and to get them to give me the readings once they have performed the road force balancing.
