After the tire is trued, the next step is to balance the tire on the truck. Once again, this is done so that the tolerances of the wheel, brake drum/rotor, spindle, bearings and so on are all factored into the balancing process. The truck is placed on a sensor that measures vibration, and this information is sent to the computer in the high-speed strobe light.
