Does Trailer Wheel and Tire Combo # A15R645SMD Come Balanced


Do these tire and wheel combos need to be balanced by a local shop or do they come balanced? Maybe this is a non issue for a trailer tire?


Expert Reply:

The tire and wheel combos we carry like the # A15R645SMD are not machined balanced. You can have the tire and wheel combos balanced at a local tire shop if you wanted to but they would need to use a pin plate adapter to do so.

What our tire manufacturers will do is line up the light spot on the tire with the heavy spot on the wheel. This is a type of balancing but not like how car tires are balanced (with weights on a balancing machine).

Trailer tires do not need to be balanced like vehicle tires. It has been found to have little benefit.
