Trxus MT 4 Oz Balancing Patches?

Post by JMOS4 » Fri Jul 09, 2021 8:59 pm

Hi all,

Just got a new set of 35's for my 07 and this set 3 of them have 4oz patches on the inside like a repair patch. The place I ordered them thru said it was normal but out of the last 3 sets none have had this.

Should I be concerned or return them to get ones that don't have this?

Tire manufacturers use them to cut down on rejects that don't happen to be within balance tolerance out of Forming.

They are more common in larger tires now - instead of selling tires and expecting the consumer to add tons of weight to the rim

I have Interco TRX - US - MT tires on my 1972 F250 but don't remember if they came with balancing patches.
It has probably been more than 15 years since I got those tires and I have never had any issue with them.
(The tire shop did have to spend a little time balancing them during the original install, but they have been good)
The truck isn't used very much; mostly just to haul a few 2 ton loads of gravel every year for the camp driveway
