    I put on a set of General Grabber AT2 P265/70R16s last weekend, one tire took a bunch of weight 11.25 oz but only had 2lbs of road force rest of the tires took a low amount of weight and the highest road force was 16lbs. After a week of driving they ride smooth and are pretty quiet for how aggressive they are. I have even recommended to our Quick Lane manager stop stocking BFG rugged trails and stock the AT2s much better tire. Yes I did all the work my self, this was part of service I was doing including plugs, oil change, rear diff fluid and a few other things.

    Definity Dakota AT were on it

    Seems like excessive weight on that one tire. I would turn the tire 180 degrees on the wheel and rebalance it.

    Probably on the next oil change I will but right now it is riding on the left front with out issue the truck rides great. It used to be we put the tires with the lowest amount of weight on the front, now that we do road forcing the lowest road force goes on the front. That is where you get tire vibrations from. 10oz or .25oz as long as it comes out to zero the tire is balanced.

    Just for any one who doesn't understand road force balancing here is a good read on it

    Thanks for the link, first I've heard of that term and was about to ask what the heck you were talking about.
