Balance could be off if
he moved the sensor to a different part of the rim when he adjusted the band. If he did not move it then it would seem that if he placed the tire in the exact same spot on the rim then the weights should be the remain the same.

They said the opening was smaller than what their equipment would work on. The guy at the Honda dealership said that the balancing should not matter since it was the same tire he removed and put back on, and that he put it back on exactly as it came off.
Is this true that balancing the wheel after installing the tire would have no effect or was he just blowing smoke?
Thanks for any information.
looking around for a possible replacement
