Getting 6 new Toyos. Last time the only tires I had balanced were the fronts. Is this what most do, or do you have all 6 balanced? Not balancing the rears saves $100.00.

And probably beats your coach to death for the next 4 or 5 years...seriously? Just to save
$100? [emoticon]

I would never put a tire on any vehicles/trailer without balancing.

As always... Opinions and YMMV.

I always balance all tires. Usually with weights but this last set for the MH they used beads and they seem to work well.

I don't think any shop I've ever been to would put tires on without balancing them. I just include it as part of the price.

Always balance all tires when installed.

My preference and practice is to use beads. Hope that's one more for balancing.

My preference would be to have them trued and balanced for the ultimate quality ride. All tire have run-outs and out of balance problems. Nothing is perfect in its mold form.

Another vote for balance them all. I have been happy with the beads on the RV and they are not very expensive.

Balance all with beads.
