The original tire of my 05 MDX has balancing in two locations; on the inside edge of the rim and a strip on the internal surface of the rim close to the outer side of the vehicle, the purpose is to balance the tire from both sides. I had the tire balanced yesterday and the gentleman who did the job explained to me that the tire can be balanced without putting the strip (he called that a static balance) After the tires were balanced the reading on the COATS 1050 DIRECT DRIVE COMPUTER BALANCER shows 00 for one side and dashes for the other side. Is the tire really balanced in that case and if it is why the factory needed to add the strip? Thank you.
have the same problem?
