Balance - (2) Rim & Tire --

A tire that is out of balance causes erratic handling and vibration. A tire balancer is commonly used to balance tires, but the front tires on most 2WD models can be balanced on the ride. Either way, just spin the tire and mark the top position where it stops. Spin it again - if the mark stops elsewhere, you're good to go. But if it stops in the same spot, add a little weight inside the rim at the mark and repeat until there is no longer a heavy side. Self adhesive tire weights are available for balancing, but in a pinch, poster putty, chewing gum, or even a folded up dollar bill glued to the rim will work. For tires that are really out of balance, try gluing $20 or even $50 bills to the rim (or better yet, send the bills to and we'll send you a balanced rim).
