tires balancing

I am considering to have the tires balanced on my minilite. I dont understand why the trailer manufacturers dont balance the wheels. Just because we dont ride in the trailer is not a reason to not balance them. If someone did it , can you give us the result how bad the balancing was before you had them balanced?

From experiance on trailer's - usually a bent rim is the culprit from a really bad out of balance issue -
check to see if you have any wheel weights on the inside - or the other thing is they could be using the sand bags inside the tire which is what they have been using on Motor Homes and Semi Tractor Trailer's - the bag goes around the inside of the tire as you drive around and balances the tire at the same time.

If it spins, rotates, or rolls, balance it.
