Like I said, I am no tech anymore... anyone??? If the wheel is truly calling for that much weight, perhaps you can rotate the tire on the wheel 180 degrees to offset the weight distribution on the tire and wheel.
i think you are right, it took the mechanic quite a while on one tire during balancing, found it odd. but i am not savvy with this. Noticed the steering wheel shaking at 60mph
