    I took my blazer to Discount Tire today to have my tires balanced and rotated. I've been getting a fishy vibration so I figured "what the hell!". The guys balances it after 20 minutes and comes in and tells me he added 10 oz's of weights to my tires. YIKES!!! Feels alot better now.

    He should have let the air out, broke the bead seal loose, rotated the tire on the rim at least 90 degrees and reaired it. That works alot of the time for reducing the amount of weight to balance.
