Not saying its the case all the time, but my old truck went from:The problem with road force balancing …not 5% of the installers have any idea what they are doing. I have watched this procedure while getting new tires many times. Only ONCE did I see the tech measure the bare rim so adjustment could be made after tire is mounted.
I asked the teen aged tech what the road force numbers after he mounted my CR-V tire job (I paid extra for RF Mounting). He said, “I don‘t know what you are talking about, I just balance tires”).
Most of the time it isn’t a Road Force issue.
It’s a Work Force issue.
Perfectly smooth on old worn out tires
To absolute crap vibration on new tires
To much better but not perfect on replacement new tires - after ID'ing the bad ones via a road force balance.
No one ever measured a rim.
Also, unless the rim has been damaged at some point in time, I don't see it being the issue very often - if its an OEM rim at least.
