Don't know if this is normal or not. So i'm balancing my front tire and everything went smooth. So i just felt like spinning the tire really fast just because im bored and noticed something disturbing. There is a section of the tire that dips down as it is spinning(looking eye level horizontally). You can visually see the small line 1/8 of an inch above the rim dip down.
It appears like the tire is either deformed or i did not set the bead correctly. So i broke the bead and re-set it again. Still has a section that dips down as it's spinning. Though it is balanced, i find it disturbing that a tire itself(not the RIM) dips, and at high speeds this can be a major issue and can be dangerous.
I spent an hour trying to figure out why it would do that. SO, i change the front with another set. Still having the same problem but at a different section. I got tired of messing with front and decided to do the rear tire. The first thing i do is spin it and look for the dip in the tire as it's spinning. AND the rear does it too!!!!WTF!!!!!. I swaped out three different rears (soft, pr
-e, and medium). And they all dip while spinning. Keep in mind i bought these tires from various shops, online, sportbiketrackgear, JCmotors. They can't be all deformed can they??
I have done five track days and plan to do novice heavy weight as soon as the next "new racer school" starts. I have not met pavement yet and plan to keep it that way. This will crush my confidence with Michelins forever!
Does this go away when you put some speed and the tire will stretch out and or even out? Also this is my first time changing/ballancing tires. Can someone please give me an explaination so i can sleep well tonight.
