8-9. TIRE BALANCING (Contd)
13. Repeat step 12 until wheel (2) and tire (1) are properly balanced.
14. Record total amount of weight (6) on wheel (2), and remove weights(s) from wheel (2) and wheel (2)
Total amount of weight must be split 50/50 between imer and
outer edges of wheel rim. For example, if 6 oz. of total weight was
required to balance wheel, attach 3 oz. to outer edge of rim and 3
oz. to inner edge of rim.
15. Attach weights (6) to inner and outer edges of wheel (2), ensuring weight clips (7) are centered on
light spot (5), or weights (6) are placed evenly to sides of light spot (5) if more than one weight (6) is
used. Using small hammer or clip claw-hammer tool, tap weights to conform to wheel (2) edge
