You know....that may just be it.Both my wheels/tires are well within the specs at which the maker recommends balancing. I think 0.75 oz in my case. You bet I rode without weights last fall. NO vibrations and I sure could tell I used to balance car wheels in a distant past and we testdrove all the vehicles just in case we could have missed on the balancing.

But I removed the weights just to be contrary on another bead thread somewhere else. I'll put them back I am picky and like to balance, reminds me of the old days watching wheels spin on the Snap-On static balancer.
Have tools, will travel!
