Icon1 Tire Hard Spots and low profile tires

Their is a draw back to having very low profile tires that I thought I might point out .I read all the time about people experiencing vibration problems that are very often blamed on the tires state of balance which may be incorrect.Over time a tire can develop hard points on its surface. Low profile tires don't have enough side will flex to absorb the vibrating effects of hard points on a tire. Some repair shops that have the most advanced tire balancing equipment also have included with the tire balancing a device that can detect hard points on a tire. Unfortunately for low profile tire owners ,their is no way to take the hard points out of the tire leaving you with the decision to either live with it or replace a tire with plenty of usable tread life left.
