I skipped balancing the rear wheel with the last set of tires that I put on, BIG MISTAKE!!! It was fine around town and up to about 65mph, then it started to vibrate a little bit, and by the time I reached 80mph it felt like the rear end was actually hopping off the ground. I tool the wheel off and had it balanced at my local shop (electronic balancer) and it only took 1/2oz, but the result was a silky smooth ride.
I just replaced the tires again last weekend, and stopped on the way home to get them balanced this time...
