To quote a old tire commercial" If it's round,rubber and rollin'",I balance it. Just had the guys at my local Discount tire do our new 5er.They said they don't do too many,but gave me a price of $7.50 a tire to balance and also sold me a road hazard for all four tires.Thought that was crazy to guaranty the China bombs,but for $70 bucks,I took them up on it. I did spend a good chunk of $$ putting tires on the dually the week before.

I've never been a fan of them, but some like them. Click image for larger version

I replaced my factory bias ply load C rated tires with radial load D and had them balanced. Took the squirminess out of the trailer, though that may be mostly due to the change to radials.

Then I installed the shock kit. Sooo smooth to pull now.
