Nitto INVO tire balancing problem

Anyone have the Nitto INVO's and are experiencing a balancing problem where the wheels will eventually go out of balance within 2-3 months?

Not INVO's in particular, but definitely with other tires.

Even the mighty PS2's can have balancing problems. I had a bad set of PS2's before. (2 out of 4 were out of balance) It took me over a month, and several trips back-and-forth to convince my local tire dealer that it was the TIRES... and not my wheels. They kept wanting to blame the brand new wheels I just bought, because they said they had never seen a "bad" PS2 tire before.

Out of balance, or the technical term "out of round" is more common than you think. It's not isolated to Nitto's, so what you are experiencing happens with other tire brands as well.

Getting your tire installer to FOCUS on the damn tire instead of the wheel is the hardest part of the whole process.

Your tires have a warranty, so it's possible you could get a replacement tire from the manufacturer if you can get some proof it's defective. This is a safety issue. Just save your receipt, and contact the place where you bought your tires. Raise a little hell if they give you any crap.

If you need any specific tips on how to handle this situation, I can give you a few pointers. PM me if you need any additional help.
The best is yet to come...
