This is the point that never gets across. The manufacturers made no attempt to balance drums and hubs for many years. Show me the drillings in your drums.

I have been balancing my tire, wheel and hub assemblies for many years. I can static balance them in my tool & die shop, or spin balance them on the trailer with my Alemite Electronic Wheel Balancer.

The point that I failed to make was that an unbalanced tire can be better or worse depending on how its mounted relative to the heavy spots.

If you can't find the drill marks, I guess I'm still on for dinner?

What was the reason for not balancing tires on any vehicle that you put forth to justify why you shouldn't have all tires balanced. That was the question, not how some one might luck out by mounting tires that balanced without additional weight. That doesn't mean that tires don't need balancing, which obviously all do.

The point is that you don't know what you have before or after your balancing.

Well, just check out centramatic.com and you won't have to worry about balancing.
Haven't had a lead weight on my truck or trailer for a couple of years...
