I pulled my TT into Discount Tire the week after I bought it. They balanced, torqued, and had me out of there in under 30 minutes for around $40.

25 years ago tire shops balanced with the wheel on the car , ect to balance the whole assembly

I know that, but I have not seen a computer balance off the vehicle that did not smooth things out if the tech was proficient and the tire round. I guess it is harder to tell on a trailer admittedly unless the unbalance is great.

Several years ago, went to these units on my F450: Tire Balancers, Tire Balancing, Wheel Balancer and Wheel Balancing from Centramatic Have not had a lead weight on the truck since then. Late last year, put them on the Suites. Balance problems, if there were any, are solved.

Standard procedure is have your wheels balanced when you buy a new rig or used. That ends the problem!

I did not see a tire balancing station at Northwood’s factory. When I bought my Fox new years ago it really needed balancing.


Great trailer.....
