    I do my own tire changes, balance all my tires, and I always check run-out when it's on my balance stand. It's just a matter of course, and checked every time.

    I have a motorcycle repair shop that changes my tires for me. I generally replace tires with the same model tire. He marks the new tire with a paint pen and puts the new tire on in the same relative spot as the old tire. I balance them at home on a Marc Parnes balancer and I rarely have to make much of an adjustment to the weights. My Oilhead uses Michelin PR3 tires and my Airhead have been using Michelin Pilot Activ.

    Since the bikes come from the factory with both wheels balanced, I do the same when replacing the tires. I too use a Marc Parnes balancer and it has proven to be quite accurate over the years..YMMV
