Re: Tire rotation??
I good tire man will balance the rim before putting the tire on, and then re-balance the whole thing (a really good tire guy will even clean the rim prior to balancing it, to make sure anything that can skew the balance is removed). Mine took a few GRAMS to balance last time.
The tire rotation is not even debateable; it has to go in the proper direction. It has to do not only with tire design (bias vs. radial), but tread pattern too.
Lesson learned about this guy; I'd pay a real professional to do it right, and take my loss...
