The ONLY person that doesn't balance rear duals... is the lazy, cheap dealer installing them.

Currently at the FMCA rally in Bowling Green and attended the RV Tire seminar this morning. Was not able to ask the question regarding the balancing RV tires but caught up with the presenter who is a retired engineer from Goodyear later today. His response regarding balancing , don't bother, the weight of the overall tire negates any unblance.

Agree or disagree, that's what his response was.

By the way as a side note having a great time at the Rally and enjoying the seminars and entertainment

Well from personal experience. With our motor home, we developed a very bad shake at highway speeds. I took our motor home to a local truck tire dealer. They checked the balance of all 6 tires and found out the the right inner real dual did not have any balance weights on it. They balanced that tire an our shake went away.

Sounds like the retired engineer doesn't have any practical experience.

Last year when I replaced all 6 tires every tire was balanced. The front tires where computer balanced with the tires mounted on the front axle.

As for the OP question. Yes balance all tires regardless of weight of the tire or what the experts say.
