Tire Balancing

Just got my new 17" AR Wheels and Nitto tires mounted at Discount Tire. Upon getting them home, I noticed one of the four wheels did not have a balance tape weight added to it like the other three. Is it more probable the 4th wheel and tire are correctly balanced or more likely the shop forgot to balance it?

Re: Tire Balancing

Drive the car. Do they feel balanced? It's not out of the realm of possibility that it balanced out without any weights. Not likely but completely possible. My new Coys wheels required barely any weights on them.

Re: Tire Balancing

I should have mentioned I am working on some other vibration issues and didn't want to complicate that diagnosis by introducing the new wheels and tires just yet. I'll go with the simplest answer and just have Discount recheck the balance. Thanks
