factory wheel and tire issue

Just had my tires rotated and balanced and the pass front tire took 7.5 ounces of weight to balance out. The tech said that he took off over 6.5 ounces from the factory balance. So I be worried with this much weight needed to balance one wheel. The others ones are dr side front 3/4 oz, pass rear no weight added and dr side rear 2.25 ounces. Jeep has 12,000 miles on it with even tread wear

I just turned 13,000 on mine. I just had them rotated not balance. But now you got me wondering. But there's no vibration so I guess that's a good thing.

Re: factory wheel and tire issue

No sure what rims you have but I have 8 identical summit rims.
Some have nearly zero weight, (one actually 1/2 oz only) up to 7 OZ on some other rims/tires.

These (Chinese made) rims seem all over the map. but as long as it's balanced and vibration free you're good to go.

They are the 18" rims. just threw me for a loop when he said he had to use that much weight to get them to balance out. Hell my dodge has 10 ply 35" mud tires and did not require that much weight to balance them out.

I did not have any vibration either but wanted to rotate them and balance them at 12,000 just to see how they were wearing
