Tire balancing - How many weights?
I just put a new Z6 on my Gt, and used a Marc Parnes balancer. I checked the balance of the rim, then got the new tire on and checked the balance again. It sure seems to need alot of weight to balance out. Is there a rule of thumb about too many weights? Should I pop it loose and rotate the tire on the rim some more to help minimize the weights? The original didn't even have a single weight. Any help would be appreciated.
By the way, that would be the rear tire. I have the front to put on also.
