    Default Road Force balancing

    Hey guys,
    Thought I would ask here. I have the dreaded vibrations happening at 100-120ish. Ive had them balanced and of course it hasn't gone away. I did go to Commercial tire on startop road and they have told me that my front tires are bad and that I need new ones. Doing some research, seems like not many shops know how to use the machine. Now they said, they didn't do it on any tire cause they could tell the tire was bad without putting it on the machine. Im skeptical and want a second opinion, just to make sure they weren't just hoping for a quick sale of new tires to me.

    I did come across 2 threads in here

    but they were both closed so I decided to make a new one. Most recommend Parker Automotive so Im gonna try them out. Anyone have any suggestions for anyone else?
