Busted tire

Recommended Posts

Today i was driving with my friend and his tire blew on his STS. Now he says that when he got his tires the tire guy put the weight in the inside of the wheel instead of the outside and this warped them badly, and i heard that the weight is always supposed to be on the outside. Is this true or not? Can he take them back and show the guy what a crappy job he did or is it alright that they were on the inside?Is this true or not?

Thanks :huh:

I always request that the weights go on the inside.

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

I do too. In fact, I insist on it. It makes the wheel look less cluttered.

I remember that when (1966) we were shown how to balance tires on an old Bear "Sparking type" tire balancer, that we were supposed to split the weight between the inside & outside of the wheel. Too much weight in one place can cause a dynamic balance problem.

I am amazed at the new computer balancers that barely spin the tire and wheel assembly, yet they get excellent results.
