Bad vibes - BFG

I put 5 new BFG E-rated 285/75 16's and Mojave ATXs on my van a couple years ago. I think I have <10,000 miles on them.

One tire has been a persistent pain, and either going out of balance, or unable to be balanced well.

I'm on my 4th balance of it this year, and the tire place in Fresno said "it was bad, we got it better but it isn't perfect". Previously they spun the tire 180deg on the rim to try and improve things.

I spoke to Discount Tire that sold me the tires and said I want a warranty replacement when I get the van home (they have the history on the tire). I think it has some kind of weird core/radial shift going on. They did check the wheel and it was not bent.

So, no bulging, no tread sep, just bad balance. All the other tires are fine.

Re: Bad vibes - BFG

put a mark on the rim and tire to see if it is spinning on the rim.
