One tool that is currently in the market to assist in predicting ride/vibration response is the Hunter GSP9700/9712. This tool can approximate the low point of the wheel and the high point of the tire. Allowing the tire to be match mounted to the wheel makes the Hunter GSP9700 is an excellent tool to minimize road force variation of the tire/wheel assembly.
The Hunter GSP9700/9712 should not be used to predict or determine tire uniformity values or if a tire or wheel meets a radial force specification. Mickey Thompson does not rely solely on the values obtained from radial force machines when considering adjustments
Lube both tire beads and the rim on both outer flanges (where the bottom of the tire beads will make contact with the flat portion of the rim when seated).
Mickey Thompson recommends tires be dynamically (spin) balanced.
Proceed with assembly, mounting and balancing in accordance with RMA procedures.
After the beads have been seated, visually check the positioning of the tire bead aligning rings molded into the tire. If spaced uniformly around the rim above the flange, the tire is properly positioned on the rim. If the tire is not positioned properly on the rim, deflate the tire and relube both tire beads and the rim before proceeding with reassembling.
The paint marks on Mickey Thompson Tires are not indications of tire high or low spots and are merely marks applied for production purposes only.
On dual tires, each tire/wheel assembly should be installed with the valve 180 degrees opposite each other.
