    I just replaced my OEM alloys with wheelers steelies and need a balance. whats a good price for the road force balance, this tire shop near me says $25 a wheel. I'm so fed up with crappy balances!!!.

    I think I paid $75 or 80 bucks total, IDK for sure. It was under $100 but over $50.

    well, I just got back.. it drives real smooth except 1 of my new wheels was not round and the machine could not balance it. now I get to contact wheelers and see if they can help.
    but even with that warped wheel on the rear it drives smoother than ever.:D

    yeah I had the same deal from sears where I bought the tires from over a year ago...but 6 balances and 4 alignments later they still could not get it right.
    So I went with this new shop , highly recommended.
    I avoid Discount tire around here, never had a good visit.
    but mileage may vary :notsure:

    I went to Discount because they used the Road Force balancing system.

    i payed 25 a tire and it was well worth the money i spent, my tires have thirty thousand miles and have never rode this good.....the guy tells me it will be the last one i should need with these tires... i believe him, screw a regular balancer can't match the road force....
