Tire road force numbers.

What are the worst numbers have you all had when getting your tires balanced?
I just did mine today.

The worst one was 123lbs of road force. Had to add 10oz inside and 4oz outside.
Second tire was 66lbs and 7oz total. The balance machine was flashing red and said DANGER, DANGER (Will Robinson). J/K. It did say warning that it was out of spec and my friend who is the mechanic said he has never seen that bad before in his 20+ yrs exp.

The other two were not bad for balance but flat spots. If I install them timed I can bunny hop. Lol

This is a good rational I can use for the wife to finally get new wheels too.

Re: Tire road force numbers.

Funny you say what tires. I have the same ones and mech said I prolly have a bad cord in one too. Oh, and after balancing the road force never got much better. My truck shakes really bad, even after the computer said what position them on the truck.

I have the same problem, when I rotated them the only difference was the vibration went from the seat to the steering wheel and the way the truck pulled changed too. From the short time ive had these tires i dont really have anything good to say about them.
