As you are probably aware, tyres have dots on them which mark the light
spot on the tyre. This is then fitted next to the valve which is
potentially the heaviest part of the wheel and thus to a certain degree
the light spot and heavy spot will counteract eachother.
We did not put balance dots on our tyres as we were striving to
eliminate any light and heavy spots on our tyres. We have been asked
this question about dots many times and as we have improved upon, but
not eliminated the light/heavy spots on our tyres, we have decided to
re-introduced the balance dots on certain new tyres over the coming
weeks. Your tyre will not have a mark on it.
