Thanks for all the good info, you have no idea how many shops just plain don't know how to balance these larger 20" wheels and blame it on everything under the sun except themselves. So to summarize, because I know I will never get a tech or service manager to read anything for more than 10 seconds are these bullets correct below on what they need to do? did I miss anything below?
I need to get new tires but I am petrified to go get them because my jeep is smooth as silk now and given the past experience with shaking tires on this jeep and no one knowing how to correct.
-Use collets and pin plates when mounting wheel on balancer
-Take the balancer out of Smartweight mode
-Balance in conventional mode and put the balancer in "Fine" mode to show the unbalance under .25oz.
