Unable to Balance the Tire

Unable to balance tire.

When balancing a tire it's important to recheck the tire after the first attempt. This is because something can be inside the tire such as liquid flat repair or excessive liquid from the air compressor. The liquid will settle in different locations each time the tire is spun. There are different products and many have been saved with a slow leak, no wrench, and a long highway, but removal of the product after use is highly recommended.

Sometimes liquid in a tire can damage sensitive TPMS sensors. These sensors are required in vehicles manufactured after 1998. If the sensing port in the TPMS sensor becomes clogged, a corrupt signal is sent to the controller indicating a lower than specified air pressure. The controller will illuminate the warning lamp if low pressure is sensed at one of the wheels.
