TT2 runout problem

Looking for some input from some of the tire guys here. I have had a frontend vibration I can't get rid of. I had the set roadforce balanced and they told me the fronts were out of spec. I am going to be sending a couple of rims back to American racing. They told me their tolerance for out of round is .035". Any thoughts on the specs I have here? Would this cause a fairly bad vibration? Worse above 75 mph. They are 17" on 245/45's and 275/40's

Thanks Noel

Re: TT2 runout problem

Yeah, .035 might not seem like alot, it's about the distance of a spark plug gap. I imagine it would cause major vibration above 70 MPH. I used to balance tires for a living, and any rim that required more than 3 ounces of weight, would be considered out of round. So it doesn't take alot to throw them off.
