I have to strongly disagree with your statement by bashing ALL "goodyear" tires
ANY tire can and will, cup, due to many factors....
Bad Alignment
Worn Suspension Componets
Bad Shock
Bad Wheel
Improper Balance
Improper Air Pressure

It balances the wheel while applying a load to the tire (similar to the weight of the vehicle while driving). Randy can elaborate further re: the specifics but generally, you are adding the reaction force of the road on the tire into the balancing equation and getting a better overall result.

Why don't all balancing operations do this? I imagine it's a rather expensive balancer and spin balancing works well in most cases.

Default Shimmy and shake

I have a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 4X4. I have a shimmy around 60. I have had my tires balanced for the second time and 4 wheel alignment. When I get up to 70MPH the passenger seat shimmy's back and forth one to two inches making a heck of a sound. You can barely feel the shimmy in the steering wheel. I had our local tire company check the shocks and verify the nothing is loose in the undercarrage. I have been unable to find the problem. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Rich Fields
