    Hey all. Finally, it's almost time to get the GT350 out of hibernation. Salt residue on the roads is beginning to diminish and my long gravel driveway is starting to harden up. Probably will be just a couple more weeks.

    Anyways, I just had tires mounted to my new Signature SV902 wheels today. 295/30/R19 and 305/30/R19 Michelin PS4S on R-spec. I had them Road Force balanced and one of the fronts came out at 12 lbs and one of the rears came out at 15 lbs. The other two wheel assemblies were in the single digits. The tire shop owner insisted that anything under 16 lbs would be fine and didn't feel it necessary to dismount and try to match mount in hopes of achieving better numbers.

    I know the real test will be taking it for a highway drive to check for vibrations, but I can't do that for another couple of weeks. So, I thought I'd ask all of you on your experience with Road Force balancing on our cars and at what point vibration might be felt. Is this tire shop owner on his game?
