Yes, 35's and up are hard to balance. An inferior tire of smaller size can also be a real bear. A road force balance will eliminate the issues commonly found with bigger tires.

A road force balance will 1) tell the tire tech if they need to index the tire to the wheel (rotating it for best balance), 2) determines the uniformity of both the wheel and tire to insure you don't have a bent wheel or grossly out of spec tire, and, 3) insure that excessive weight is not used to bring the tire & wheel back into balance parameters.

When I did a road force balance on my new Toyos recently, we found a new tire that was way out of spec and the shop replaced it for no charge to me instead of trying to add weight, which does have it's limits!
