Was at the tire shop getting some tires installed and the tech said that one of the tires was not balancing correctly. He stated that it was calling for 14.5 oz. on one side -- suggested I should get a replacement and that the tire was defective (I bought the tires online, they were just the installer.) He put the old tire back on which balanced fine, indicating it was not a bent wheel, rather a fault of the new tire.
I know nothing about tire balancing, is 14.5oz cause for concern / indicative of a defective tire? I trust these folks and will proceed with replacement, just wondering how far outside of normal this tire's balancing issue is.
