Re: Tire balancing questions? (catfishez)

When the wheels are hit hard by something or simply the steel or aluminum is soft, the get somewhat eliptic, not a perfect circle. Although they are balance 'properly', there are sideway movement because the alteration. Not only a wheel moves exactly in vertical motion, but sideways too. That's why.
I had a rim who was hit and then it couldn't be balanced perfectly. Replace the rim or send it to be balanced to a GOOD wheel repair shop... good luck!
