Balancing tires

Since we have a staggered set up, I donít see a reason balancing tires. Do you guys feel like balancing tires helps?

What does a staggered setup have to do with balancing tires?

Donít know. Been hearing some folks say since you donít rotate them, it wonít really matter if you balance them or not.

Not sure what its technically called but I get my wheels/ tires hi speed balanced on the car every year. 20" wheels...

They remove all the weights, clean the wheels and total new weights.

No vibrations. I think it's about $50 a wheel... been doing this on all my performance cars

Tire is going to hop in no matter what the size or application if not balanced. The tires should be road force balanced as well. You need to request this style balancing at most tire shops.
